Findings have revealed that there is currently an ongoing protest in Bonny Island against the Train 7 project of the Nigerian Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG) by members of the Bonny Kingdom Professionals and Ijaw Youth Council members who are insisting on implementation of a new salary benchmark for the NLNG Train 7?
According to inpecable sources, the workers are agitated and aggrieved that for so long, their salary structure had remained the same without any changes.
“We want a new salary benchmark for NLNG Train 7. It is overdue and we won’t keep quiet,” one of the protesting workers told kadecommunicationng exclusively.
