Minister Of Petroleum, President Muhammadu Buhari, Remains Clueless, Has No Solution At All To The Endless Fuel Scarcity

Sponsored link
Emerging report indicates that long fuel queues have refused to disappear from major cities across the country, despite the assurance by the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu, to end the 10-day long fuel scarcity.
Elsewhere, President Muhammadu Buhari who doubles as the Minister of Petroleum, is yet to make any categorical statement on the fuel scarcity saga.
This is even as the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria, PENGASSAN, plans to embark on a strike on Monday, December 18, 2017.
Recall, that Ibe Kachikwu had assured the National Economic Council, NEC, on Thursday, that fuel shortage would end in 48-hours.
The NEC which comprises of Governors and some Ministers, is chaired by Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo.
PENGASSAN said its members would go on strike after the failure of a truce between the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources and Neconde Energy Limited with its members.
A statement by the Spokesperson of PENGASSAN, Fortune Obi, confirmed that the meeting ended in a stalemate.
However, investigations across the country show that the fuel scarcity is far from over.
In Abuja, long queues were seen along Kubwa Expressway, Central Area, and other parts of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT. Many filling stations in other parts of the city were not dispensing the product.
In Markudi, Benue State, motorists were worried over the continued scarcity of Premium Motor Spirit, PMS, which had persisted in the State for over a week.
In Jos, Plateau State, it was gathered that the situation is just as bad.
In Kano, it was observed that although some filling stations got a supply of the product on Friday, most of the stations refused to operate on Saturday.
The few filling stations that operated include: A.A. Rano at Hadejia Road/Eastern Bypass roundabout, NNPC Mega Station, Audu Manager along Maiduguri Road, and Conoil on Murtala Muhammed Way.
A motorist, Muhammad Isah, who spoke at Conoil filling station, said he had spent three hours in the queue and could not fill his tank.
Many of the filling stations in Kaduna yesterday, kept their premises shut, with only a few selling fuel to intending buyers.
