Petrol Price Is N800 From 240 Million-Litre Vessels .

Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited says offloading 240 million litres of Premium Motor Spirit, otherwise called petrol has commenced to tackle the worsening nationwide petrol scarcity.

The filling stations now sell the product at an average price of N800 per litre in various locations and the 240 million litres of petrol imported into the country came in through five vessels, which were offloaded into five depots.

The South-West Regional Coordinator of the Nigerian Midstream and Downstream Petroleum Regulatory Authority, Ayo Cardoso, confirmed this despite claims by the NNPC that the logistic issues causing fuel scarcity had been addressed, while, Nigerians in Lagos and other parts of the country still struggled to get fuel as many filling stations remained shut.


It was also observed that the hardship being encountered as a result of fuel scarcity worsened on Monday after the queues in filling stations became longer as work resumed across the nation for the new week, while, the fuel scarcity also coincided with the resumption of public schools in some states, adding to the burden on parents, teachers and school owners.


The NNPC retail outlet along the Sagamu-Interchange axis was occupied by buyers who wanted to get the product at N580/litre, while, commuters heading to work, schools, and various destinations in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital found themselves stranded due to the effect of the lingering fuel scarcity, and many bus stops were filled with passengers trying to board vehicles to schools and places of work.
