Scarcity of fuel has brought about long queues in most of the filling stations in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), even as the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) assured that the situation will soon be normalize for regular supply of the product.
The National Public Relations Officer of IPMAN, Alhaji Suleiman Yakubu, in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) today, February 28 in Abuja attributed the scarcity to the price of crude oil that had gone up and had therefore affected the price of products.
He assured Nigerians that normal supply of petroleum products would soon be restored since loading have commenced at various deports.
“We want to assure the buyers that government and marketers are doing everything possible to ensure that the products are available in every filling station within a few days starting from today.”
Meanwhile, some motorists in the nation’s capital have expressed disappointment over the development and called on filling stations that have fuel to sell.
