Nigerian Oil Workers Strike Amid Fears of Mass Layoffs

Lagos, March 10 (RHC)-- In Nigeria, oil workers staged a nationwide strike Wednesday after the Nigerian government announced plans to restructure the state oil company without having consulted the workers.

Nigeria is the largest oil producer in Africa.  The proposed restructuring calls for dividing the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation into multiple parts.  Workers say they fear the plan could lead to mass layoffs.
