Minister of State for Petroleum Resources Dr. Ibe Kachikwu on Tuesday reassured that the lingering fuel scarcity in the country will end on Thursday beginning from Abuja and Lagos while queues across the states will disappear by the weekend.
Kachikwu said this at a town hall meeting with the management and staff of the Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency (PPPRA) in Abuja
He gave the assurance as a follow up to a recent promise he made when he met the Senate Committee on Petroleum Resources (Downstream) saying that the acute scarcity of petrol will ease on or before 7th of April.
The minister who is also the Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) also hinted that by May prices of petroleum products will be readjusted to match current trends.
He said, “Hopefully by tomorrow (Wednesday)/Thursday the fuel queues in Abuja should be over, hopefully the same thing will happen to Lagos and thereafter by the weekend we should see Kano, Katsina, Sokoto, Port Harcourt and Warri get off the queues
