Kerosene scarcity hits Lagos – NUPENG


The National Chairman, Surface Tank Kerosene Peddlers (SUTAKEP) Branch of Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG), Mr. Rotimi Benjamin on Saturday lamented that there was not a single drop of kerosene in any of the private depots and that of the NNPC in Lagos, Daily Post reports.

Benjamin, who is also the Vice-Chairman of NUPENG, Lagos Zonal Council, said that scarcity of Kerosene had made its price to go up, thus making it unaffordable for the masses. Kerosene was last brought to the depots on December 27, 2016.

He urged the Federal Government to come to the aid of the masses, who could not afford the price of cooking gas, by making kerosene available at the depots and filling stations.
