Fuel scarcity likely to end in May –Marketers


As the minister of state for petroleum pledged that the lingering fuel scarcity in the country would end on or before April 7 (Thursday), marketers and depot owner said on Sunday that consumers might have to endure inadequate supply of fuel till May.

Although, the minister of state for petroleum, Ike Kachikwu had initially given May as the most likely date for the fuel scarcity to abate but was forced to recant and say the situation should normalise latest by Thursday following criticisms from different segments of the country.

A source among the marketers told a PUNCH correspondent in Lagos on Sunday that the situation on the ground did not give any hope that petrol would be readily available at filling stations this month.
