The Minister of State for Petroleum Ibe Kachikwu in a townhall meeting held in Abuja with workers of the Petroleum Products Products Pricing and Regulatory Agency (PPPRA) on Tuesday said that the fuel scarcity in the country will end from Wednesday through Thursday in Abuja and Lagos, and then Portharcourt, Kano, Katsina, Sokoto, and Warri will follow suit by the weekend.
“Today we have the whole fuel queues and it is a complete nightmare for me. It has been a lot of work but the reality is that I hurt more like every Nigerian who is at the filling station, I am very emotional about my job and the things that I do.
There isn’t sufficient reason why Nigerians should suffer this much, we just need to take the right policies as difficult as it comes, we need to take the right policies to ensure that we do not have this recurrence of fuel scarcity, it’s been with us historically, but I don’t want that to define my legacy in the petroleum industry.
Hopefully by tomorrow through Thursday the fuel queues in Abuja should be over, hopefully the same thing will happen to Lagos and thereafter, by the weekend, we should see Kano, Katsina, Sokoto and Port Harcourt and Warri get off this state” he said.
