The Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Muhammadu Buhari has criticized the Federal Government over the current fuel scarcity plaguing the country.

Buhari lamented the amount of valuable man hours that would be spent at fuel stations saying that the trend would reduce the nation’s productivity.

The APC candidate bared his mind on the issue via a series of tweets on Tuesday, March 3.

“The countless man hours that will be spent at petrol stations today, will reduce our productivity as a nation.This should not be so,” Buhari tweeted.

 

“In my time as NNPC chairman and Petroleum Minister in the late 70s, 2 of our 4 refineries were built, and domestic consumption catered for. We must reject a system that has turned one of world's largest crude exporters into an importer of petrol. Things must change,” he added.

 

“But over the last several years our refineries have declined, and we are at the mercy of imports,” Buhari said.

The fuel scarcity began during the weekend and marketers have said that the trend is likely to continue till next week.

The spokesperson for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) campaign organization, Femi Fani-Kayode earlier accused the APC of being behind the scarcity.
