AGBOR (Ika Weekly) – It was a joyous occasion on Sunday when members of SUKATED, an affiliate of NUPENG, Ika chapter, went to the church to appreciate God for having their business restored.
In a chat with Ika weekly, the chairperson of the union in Ika, Chief (Mrs) Gambari said the celebration was to give thanks to God at the Mountain of Fire and Miracle Church, Agbor, for what He had done for them.
Chief (Mrs.) Gambari stated that the joy they have is predicated on the fact that the state government have vindicated them from complicity in the kerosene fire accidents that took place recently at Warri and Port Harcourt where many persons lost their lives or were seriously injured.
She disclosed that when the unfortunate incident occurred, the state government placed a ban on them, adding that after investigation it was discovered that members of SUKATED were not involved in the adulteration of kerosene product, and therefore had to rescind its earlier decision; saying there were happy to be back in business.
She advised members to always test the kerosene they want to buy with match fire to make sure it is not adulterated before buying so as to avoid explosion. She equally urged kerosene sellers who are yet to join the union to do so now because security agents will soon commence arrest of non-members.
In the same vein, Chief Gregory Onah, the Vice-Chairman of the union in Ika, said he was happy that none of their member engages in the sale of adulterated kerosene product, which had caused so much havoc in different parts of the country.
He said that was why the state chairperson of SUKATED instructed all chapters to give thanks to God and celebrate.
