Petrol queues return to Nigerian major cities

Nigerian motorists queuing for fuel told there are no shortages

The Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division of NNPC, Ndu Ughamadu, in a statement, said Baru rushed back to the country to salvage the fuel supply and distribution challenges witnessed in some parts of the country, which he attributed to panic buying from motorists.

"Now, a litre of petrol is being sold to IPMAN members by Depot and Petroleum Products Marketers Association (DAPMAN) at N141, apart from running costs, bank charges and other expenses", he stated.

According to him, "we really don't know why they are deliberately giving us inadequate supplies and supplying the private depot owners products".
