Fuel scarcity abates in Lagos, persists in PH, Kano, others


Residents of Lagos and Abuja have begun heaving sighs of relief from the recent fuel scarcity, leaving people in Imo, Enugu, Port Harcourt, Kano and other parts of the country longing for similar respite, The Guardian reports.

Although some filling stations in both cities were yet to restart sales, many now have the product. But while major marketers like Mobil, Total, Conoil and Nipco sold at the approved N145 per litre, the independents did not.

Many stations in parts of Port Harcourt were yet to recommence sales as at yesterday. The few that did business sold around N200 and N250 per litre. The Executive Secretary, Major Oil Marketers Association of Nigeria (MOMAN), Obafemi Olawore, however noted that the queues would disappear in a matter of days.
