(Business Day)

The National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) has said that the long queues being witnessed in petrol situations due to the ongoing fuel scarcity would soon reduce.

This was disclosed on Wednesday, March 30, 2016, by the South-West Chairman of NUPENG, Alhaji Tokunbo Korodo.

“Going round some depots in Lagos, I observed that loading was going on and more filling stations are selling the product at the control price,” Korodo said.

“Some filling stations that are selling between N130 and N150 will be forced to sell at control price when the market is flooded with petrol.

“If NNPC can keep the tempo of the loading till weekend, more filling stations will have petrol and the queue of motorists at filling stations will reduce.

“The corporation should ensure that it keeps on pumping petrol to both major and independent marketers’ depots to reduce the scarcity,” he added.

Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu had earlier said that the scarcity would end by April 7.
