Fuel scarcity is increasingly getting worse, as long queues could be seen around major filling stations operating in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT.
everyevery.ng correspondent on his way to work this morning witnessed a line of vehicles that stretched from the popular Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC filling station in Kubwa to the point the eyes could no longer see.
Also, directly opposite the popular Tower at Central Business District, CBD, is the Total filling station that had a queue as long as from the gate down to the point called Masallaci junction.
NNPC on Reducing Fuel Scarcity
What is shocking about this development is that after all the promises from the petroleum resources ministry that the petrol scarcity would end in due course, nothing of that nature has been experienced.
The petroleum corporation also told Nigerians that they would be distributing an awfully large quantity of the Premium Motor Spirit, PMS across various parts of the country, especially places heavily hit by the scarcity.
Commuters are finding it hard to understand why the promise is not reflected in reality and instead of the commodity to be readily available for purchase, the claims that filling stations are hoarding the fuel and are rather selling to black markets to make more profit.
