NNPC boss returns home, tackles fuel scarcity.

December 06, 2017

The Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, Maikanti Baru, has cut short his trip to London, in order to address the issue of the fuel scarcity. The GMD of the corporation was scheduled to received an award as the Forbes Oil and Gas Man of the Year Award 2017, on Tuesday before he canceled his trip. He regarded the issue as national, and needing urgent attention.

Long queues have been spotted in various filling stations as Nigerians have been buying fuel in panic. The situation grew worse, promoting the Managing Director to return home. The shortage of the product has been nationwide, with states like Ogun, Lagos, and even the FCT experiencing the panic approach by the citizens. The federal government has assured Nigerians that there was no need for the panic, due to fact that the product was being circulated equitably, although a lot of Nigerians are in doubt.
The seeming scarcity has slowed down activities, and commuters and passengers are not assured that the situation is under control.
