Fuel scarcity: Motorists express divergent views

Motorists in Abuja have continued to experience hardship following the scarcity of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), also known as petrol.

Many of the motorists said they wake up as early as 4 a.m. to queue at fueling stations for the product, adding that they could not afford to buy from the black market because is very expensive.

The motorists blamed some of the fueling stations for the scarcity, saying that they do not sell during the daytime but rather preferred to sell to black marketers at night.

As a result, the fueling stations claim not to have fuel during the day.

A News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) checks round retail outlets at Maitama, Wuse, Gwarimpa, Wuye and Kubwa expressways revealed that the queues were getting longer by the day.

Alhaji Mamudu Aliyu, said that the hardship was biting harder, and called on the Federal Government to find a lasting solution to the scarcity.

“The scarcity is getting to a month and nothing has been done, at times it looks like it is getting better and the next day it gets worse.”
