Fuel scarcity persists in Kaduna
By; AMOS TAUNA, Kaduna
Contrary to report by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation ( NNPC), on Wednesday 28th October, 2015 that it has taken steps to eliminate the noticeable fuel queues in some major cities in the Northern axis, long queues of vehicles is on the increase in virtually all the filling stations within Kaduna metropolis and environs.
The Corporation had on Wednesday, 28th October, 2015 in a release stated that within the last 48 hours, petrol products to major cities across the country especially in the Northern part of the country has been increased considerabely to accommodate some noticeable shock in the system as a result of the growing panic demand for the products.
A motorist, Mr. Thomas Adebayo narrating his odeal to our reporter said he had gone round some filling stations in Kaduna and discovered that the official pump price of the product was not what they are selling to the people. “In most of the filling stations I went to, I discovered that fuel was being sold between N110 and N115 per litre,” he explained.
Some car owners who sought for anonymity expressed fear that the problem may persist beyond the imagination of government, stressing that it may be another attempt to put Nigerians into perpetual suffering during the ember months as was the case in 5the past. “I will not be surprised if this problem of fuel shortage persists beyond what NNPC told Nigerians, because unless the government steps in to address the situation, we are in for the worst again in this country,” a car owner lamented.
A petroleum marketer who bear his mind, said what they were selling was what they have at hand, pointing out that as soon as the product was available, it would be sold out to the public without any hitch.
Some of the filling stations visited by our reporter claimed that they had no fuel as only cars were parked in queues in anticipation of when the product would be available for sale.
NNPC had said in its release that, “We can confirm that additional daily supply of 306 trucks of PMS which is the equivalent of over 10 million litres of petrol has been injected to provide extra daily supply to Kano, Minna, Suleja, Abuja, Gusau, Katsina as well as Kaduna.”
