On behalf of all Affiliates of the World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU), we write to commiserate with all members of Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) and WFTU affiliates in Nigeria over the untimely death of Comrade Francis Olabode Johnson, the National President of your Association – who died on 31st May, 2019.
During his life time, Comrade Olabode Johnson fought for the emancipation of Nigerian workers without fear or favour. He will be missed for his tireless struggle to better the lot of Oil Workers in particular and Nigerian workers in general.
His memory will be justified by the militant action and struggles of WFTU members all over the world who continue the struggle. We extend our heartfelt condolences to his family and wish them the strength to bear his untimely death.
