Fuel Scarcity Situation Returns to Nigeria




Fuel scarcity has once again hit Nigeria.

Some petrol stations in Lagos, Ogun State, and Abuja have started hiking the price of fuel, while a few others have locked up their stations, Guardian reports.

The report further states:

However, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) said the queues resulted from panic buying, urging consumers to ignore the baseless rumours spurring the action. It noted that some filling stations may be acting on speculations about government’s stance on fuel subsidy to create artificial scarcity.

The Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, NNPC, Ohi Alegbe, said the corporation was working to maintain stability in the supply and distribution of petroleum products.

He assured that NNPC has enough petrol stock to service the country for 25 days at a national consumption rate of 40 million litres per day and has increased distribution to marketers and NNPC retail outlets across the country.

According to him, there is sufficient stock at the coastal depots in Port Harcourt, Warri and Calabar, apart from the national strategic reserves.

      Yes we know. But his promise was to perform magic. We expect no less. Pls. who has bought fuel at N40 per litre So l can call my folks to head there. After all, Liar Mohamed told us the man has done 5 years work in one month.

      Useless old man telling bare faced lies in old age. We said it, it is the criminals in Buhari’s household of APC that will be his ruin. They are still playing opposition politrics.

      It may have been ongoing before the election, but it is now PMB’s problem and only he can deal with it. I will agree we need patience however, since many Nigerians seem to be expecting immediate miracles.

    Well as a matter of fact I bought fuel today and there weren’t more than 3 cars before mine. Was done In less than 20 mins. As. A matter of fact this is this first time in almost 8 weeks I have actually been able to go near a petrol station.
    We need to stop the naysaying. Really Rome wasn’t built in a day.
