Fuel Scarcity Won’t Spread To Lagos, Others – Marketers

0 51

Oil marketers have said that the fuel scarcity being experienced in Abuja will not spread to Lagos State and other parts of the country.

The former Executive Secretary, MOMAN, Clement Isong, told The PUNCH that the scarcity was due to the Sallah break. He said tanker drivers had abandoned their trucks and travelled for the Sallah holiday.

“No, the scarcity won’t spread to Lagos and other parts of Nigeria. It will be resolved by the weekend because NNPC has increased the number of trucks to Abuja,” he said. He added that 150 trucks were released to Abuja between Tuesday and Wednesday.

The IPMAN National President, Chinedu Okoronkwo, said the cost of transporting the products to the North increased. He however added that the NNPC had taken control of the situation.

However, the NNPC, in a statement, had cautioned Nigerians not to engage in panic-buying of petrol, saying it had enough product for the country.
