Nationwide Fuel Scarcity Worsens
Long queues have returned to many of Nigeria’s cities as many fuel stations remain closed.
The dreaded and expensive Black market has quickly taken over as some sell fuel for as high as N250 per litre.
The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) seem to have decided to ignore the problem as the Corporation issued a statement urging Nigerians to stop panic buying.
The latest fuel scarcity is said to be caused by the fact that oil marketers are being owed about N413 billion as subsidy payments.
There is understandable concern that the fuel scarcity will spill into the yuletide season with citizens anxiously hoping that the Federal Government will proffer a lasting solution.
