Fuel Scarcity

(Business Day)

The National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) has urged the Federal Government to make petrol available in the country at the official rate.

The request was made by the group’s Chairman in Niger state, Alhaji Ibrahim Sarki during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Minna on Tuesday, April 5, 2016.

“We want the Federal Government to make fuel available at the approved price of N86 per litre to enable us revert to the old transport fares because passengers are complaining,” he said.

“The current economic hardship is already having its negative effect on passengers then all of a sudden increase in transport fares. So it has not been easy with our passengers and on our own side, we don’t buy only fuel to keep our vehicles going but we have to maintain them,” he added.

Minister of Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu had earlier said that the fuel scarcity would be resolved by April 7.
