The Federal Government said on Wednesday in Abuja that it would ensure complete elimination of fuel queues in the country in the next two months.
The Minister of State, Petroleum Resources, Mr Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu, gave the assurance while fielding questions from State House correspondents after a closed door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Mr Igwe Achese, the National President of the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) and his Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) counterpart, Comrade Olabode Johnson, attended the meeting.
“I think if we do that although I don’t want to put a time frame but I will expect that over the next two months. Of course, you are aware the SAP programme begins in April so over the next two months we should see quite frankly a complete elimination of this,’’ Kachikwu said.
