Fuel queues re­turn to Abuja

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Daniel Adugbo

Long fuel queues re­turned in most fill­ing sta­tions in the FCT and en­vi­rons over the weekend as mo­torists strug­gled to buy petrol in few places where the prod­uct was avail­able.

The sit­u­a­tion was fur­ther com­pounded by the un­avail­abil­ity of the prod­uct in some fill­ing sta­tions in the city cen­tre, which re­sulted to heavy traf­fic grid­lock at sta­tions which had fuel to dis­pense.

Our cor­re­spon­dent who mon­i­tored the sit­u­a­tion within the city cen­ter re­ports that most ser­vice sta­tions were un­der lock with only some Nige­rian Na­tional Petroleum Cor­po­ra­tion (NNPC) mega sta­tions dis­pens­ing the prod­uct.

It is un­clear the rea­son for the present de­vel­op­ment, but in­dus­try watch­ers are not rul­ing out the cur­rent lead­er­ship cri­sis rock­ing the In­de­pen­dent Petroleum Mar­keters As­so­ci­a­tion of Nigeria (IPMAN), as the cause of the loom­ing scarcity.
