The Workers' Council of the Petroleum Upstream Regulatory Authority (PURA) expressed its satisfaction with the performance of the Authority and called for more so as to continue delivering above and beyond what is expected of them.

The Council said so in a meeting held recently in Arusha aimed at deliberating on the Authority's performance report for the financial year 2021/22 and the performance report for the first quarter of the financial year 2022/23.

Speaking at the meeting, TUGHE Secretary for Dar es Salaam Region who is also a member of the Council (Ms. Sara Emmanuel) remarked that the performance of the Authority has been improving year on year, a positive sign that the Authority is truly determined to become a world-class regulator as its vision states.

" I am sincerely pleased to see that the Authority's performance is going from strength. Hearty congratulations to all PURA staff for contributing to this " added Ms. Sara

In his turn, the Chairman of the Council, Eng. Charles Sangweni said that the observed impressive performance should be a motivator for PURA staff to do more and to never coast.

“We should remember that the greatest enemy of progress is past success. We should therefore strive to always improve and push beyond our limits. While doing that we should also remember to embrace professionalism and integrity at all times. " added Eng. Sangweni.

PURA Workers' Council was incepted in November 2020 and comprised of 34 members. The Council is in charge of various issues including the assessment of the Authority's performance.
