Mr Tokunbo Korodo, the South-West Chairman of the National Union Of Petroleum & Natural Gas Workers(NUPENG), says the traffic gridlock in Apapa will stop once the fuel scarcity is resolved.

Speaking to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) yesterday, November 26th, Mr Korodo blamed the traffic in Apapa on the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation's (NNPC) inability to distribute fuel in over the 50 private depots.

“At present NNPC is using only six private depots in Lagos to distribute the product and they are all in Apapa axis. They are Capital Oil and Gas, The Joe Oil and Gas, Folawiyo Oil and Gas, Eternal Oil and Gas, Wisco Oil and Gas and Nipco Oil and Gas. All these depots are in Apapa; petrol tankers are coming from all states of the federation to Apapa for loading.

Presently, Apapa is the only solution to the country’s petroleum problem. Until the scarcity is over, traffic gridlock is inevitable in Apapa roads."
