Fuel Scarcity Hits Lagos & Abuja




Earlier this week, it was reported that the federal government is yet to pay N256.2 billion debt it is owing the Major Marketers Association of Nigeria (MOMAN), and as a result, fuel scarcity was imminent.

And now, Vanguard is reporting that fuel scarcity has officially hit Lagos and Abuja.

This development comes just one day after the three-day ultimatum that MOMAN gave the federal government to pay up the debt owed.

As a result of the fuel scarcity, many petrol stations have increased the pump rice of fuel, selling for between N100 and N130 per litre. In addition, there has been a significant hike in public transportation fare and prices of services and commodities in Lagos and Abuja.

      They’re still not selling o. Most fuel stations on the island are not selling. Meanwhile, my parents in Ikorodu said the scarcity hasn’t gotten there yet.

    O ma ga o. No power, plenty heat (except for the succour brought by the rain yesterday), no fuel to power fan too? Our purchasing power has been eroded by need to fuel our generators in the last 3-4 months now. We buy fuel EVERYDAY!
    Is this the send-forth punishment from the incumbent government or what?
    God please intervene in the affairs of our country, amen.

    I am surprised at this headline, ” Fuel Scarcity Hits Lagos & Abuja”. Why? Because there has been fuel scarcity in Abuja for the past one month. It can only be worst.
