Marketers Reveal When Fuel Scarcity May Likely End
It seems an end has been predicted for the fuel scarcity that has ravaged Nigeria for the past few weeks, making the Christmas celebration a boring and remarkable one for Nigerians.
Major oil marketers and depot owners said on Wednesday that the scarcity might end in a few days’ time if the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation sustained the current level of supply of Premium Motor Spirit,
"The NNPC has been giving us product and we have been distributing it. All what we are hoping for is that they should continue at the rate they are giving us,” the Executive Director, MOMAN, Obafemi Olawore, said on Wednesday.
Asked if there would be an end to the current fuel scarcity any time soon, he said, “It is gradual. If they keep giving us the product like this, the scarcity should end in a few days’ time.”
On Tuesday, the Depot and Petroleum Products Marketers Association said its members did not have petrol in their tanks despite the recent announcement by the NNPC that it had started offloading products in depots across Nigeria.
The Executive Secretary, DAPPMA, Olufemi Adewole, said: "Two of our depots have received products now and they are loading. Unfortunately, one of them that was supposed to load was turned back. I don’t know why. I am still trying to investigate. But two of them have received product and they are loading.
“We are loading and we are going to keep loading. Our members have promised to do 24 hours until the queues disappear, provided they get the product.”
