Anxiety In Abuja As Petrol Queues Resurface


Queues for petrol have resurfaced in the federal capital territory (FCT) causing anxiety and hardship for residents trying to get the product.

The scarcity of petrol is said to be caused by the refusal of marketers to load the product from the depots over an “ambiguous” price template.

It was observed that many of the petrol stations in the nation’s capital were not open for business, while a few others selling the product had people waiting in lines in the scorching sun.

Dan Oil was among the few petrol stations selling the product apart from from the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) stations.

Speaking with Newsmen today, Abdulmalik Abubakar, a resident of the FCT, said he spent over an hour struggling to purchase petrol in Gwarinpa.

“I spent one hour and about 30 minutes trying to buy fuel at Rain Oil in Gwarinpa. I’m tired, it is really frustrating,” Abubakar said.
