Fuel queues worsen in Abuja
Motorists in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), have continue to express their displeasure over the current scarcity of Premium Motor Spirit as queues have returned at filling stations
The Motorists who expressed their feelings to our correspondent in Abuja said the scarcity of cash is compounding the issue and making life unbearable.
A civil servant with one of the Federal Agencies, Dauda Ibrahim said he spent the night at the filling station to be able to buy petrol.
” I closed late from work Thursday night and got to the NNPC filling station at Airport Road, exactly 8pm, but the queue was much so I had to join because there was no much petrol in my car to take me home to Kuje, where I stay. So at midnight exactly 12am, the station stopped selling, so we had to sleep on the queues till Friday morning around 9am when I eventually got the fuel. You can imagine the stress, time wasted, sleepless night and rain that fell last night ” Ibrahim stated.
Another Motorists, James Oladele, explained that he woke up very early at 4am to join the long queues and eventually got the product after spending over 6 hours.
The Motorists and other Nigerians called on government to act swiftly to avert the situation.
