Nigerian Fuel-Tanker Drivers End Strike, Guardian Reports

Dec. 1 (Bloomberg) -- Nigerian fuel-tanker drivers called off a strike that started yesterday after reaching an agreement with the government, the Guardian reported.

The strike was partly to protest a court order freezing the bank accounts of some fuel retailers, which prevented them paying their workers, the Lagos-based newspaper quoted Dayyabu Garga, a spokesman for the group, as saying.

Nigeria, Africa’s biggest oil producer, often experiences shortages because of strikes involving oil unions and inadequate local refining capacity, making the country dependent on imports.
