Kaduna: Despite a DSS ultimatum to the NNPC and others, fuel is currently N330 a litre, and lines are growing


Despite a 48-hour deadline for the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation Limited (NNPC), Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN), and oil marketers to halt the petrol line-up, fuel prices have continued to rise.

According to DAILY POST, the Department of State Services (DSS) on Thursday set the NNPC, IPMAN, and other oil sector stakeholders a 48-hour deadline to find a solution to the present gasoline crisis.

However, on Saturday, there was a long line of drivers waiting for fuel at numerous filling stations, and the price of fuel increased to N330 per litre.

Although management at the Oando, Legacy, Crown, and Morocco gas stations were unsure of the exact day that petrol would be delivered to their particular stations, drivers and automobile owners have committed to wait in line until the good arrives.

One of the drivers remarked, “I’ve been here for three days since I heard a tank was delivering petrol to Oando, but regrettably, we have not seen fuel.”

After standing in line since Saturday AM, Mr. Joseph Iduh claimed that “one of the gasoline attendants called me that there will be fuel in the next two hours.”

After the DSS’s ultimatum, many drivers getting ready to travel over the holiday season have yet to see any relief.
