Fuel Queues In Abuja Gradually Disappearing
The situation in most fuel stations in Abuja, Nigeria’s federal capital has improved as the fuel queues have reduced and motorist are delighted at the new development.
This is because the Department for Petroleum Resources (DPR) has continued to monitor the sales of the product and residents of the city have asked for the continuity of this exercise.
The Director of Petroleum Resources at the DPR, Mr Mordecai Ladan, who led a team of officials to some fuel stations in the Federal Capital Territory and its environs warned that the agency would not condone any form of sabotage by the marketers in creating artificial scarcity of the product.
Consequently, some fuel stations who were not dispensing fuel appropriately have been sealed by officials of the DPR and they have promised to further sanction fuel marketers who divert petroleum products.
While residents of Abuja enjoy the stress-free buying of fuel in less than ten minutes, officials of the DPR have promised to ensure that fuel supply by fuel marketers is not sabotaged.
For now, residents of Abuja can heave a sigh of relief from hours of wait at fuel stations. They also expect that adequate measures would be put in place to ensure availability of the products in the days ahead.
