Donatus Mercy
, Nigeria.

The National leadership of Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers, NUPENG, has reacted to the death of Francis John, the President of Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria, PENGASSAN.

NUPENG’s condolence message was conveyed in a statement made available to DAILY POST by Comrade Williams Akporeha, its National President.

DAILY POST reported earlier that Johnson died at the wee hours of Friday.



NUPENG said it was “deeply saddened over the shocking and untimely death of Comrade Olabode Johnson,” who until his death was also the Chairman of NUPENGASAN.

The statement added, “Distressingly, Friday, May 31, 2019 has inflamed an indelible sore in the minds of Nigerian workers particularly the Oil and Gas industry.

“NUPENG this day utterly regrets the huge vacuum created by the passing to eternal rest of this great and quintessential Unionist in the labour movement. NUPENGASSAN which he meritoriously chaired kept united, strong and virile has painfully lost a rare gem in its folk.

“The world vividly recollects every moment, every struggle he championed and flashbacks of sacrifices made by Comrade Olabode Johnson to keep the trade Union in shape.

“His endearing visions, aimed at holding his members even at the expense of his immediate family can also not be overemphasized.

“His sincere commitments to see his members and staff successful, move above challenges stay productive and fulfilled in tandem with the Union’s policy thrust are memories that will remain unforgettable.

“In retrospect, NUPENG could still reflect on your emergence as the Senior Oil and Gas Workers’ President right from your first term regime in June 2014 and subsequent reelection for a second term of three years during your association’s 5th Triennial Delegates Conference on June 29, 2017 at the NAF Conference Centre and Suites, Kado.

“We love F. O. J but God loves him more!

“On this note, NUPENG in this grieving moment extends our heartfelt condolences to the wife and children of our dear late leader, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) where the deceased worked, Trade Union Congress, PENGASSAN, members of Staff, business associates, friends and well wishers; may God grant them all fortitude to bear this irreparable loss and may his precious soul continue to rest in perfect peace.

“Adieu our dearest and indefatigable Comrade!”
