Fuel Queues Return To Abuja


Abuja  – Despite assurances by stakeholders in the petroleum industry, queues have again emerged in parts of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

This has raised fears of yet another impending fuel scarcity in the country.

INDEPENDENT observed Thursday that long queues were growing in many filling stations within the metropolis as at midday as motorists rushed to fill their tanks in order to avoid the kind of hardship experienced during the yuletide.

Regardless, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has appealed to motorists in Abuja and other parts of the country not to engage in any panic-buying of petroleum products.

The corporation’s Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Ndu Ughamadu, in a statement, claimed that the NNPC has robust stock of PMS, otherwise called petrol, noting that the existing stock was sufficient to serve the nation for more than 30 days.

According to Ughamadu, “This plea comes on the heels of queues noticeable in some fuel stations, especially in Abuja.”
