Long Queues Disappear at Filling Stations as NNPC Threatens to Shut Down Stations Hoarding Fuel
The long queues for the premium motor spirit, PMS, by motorists and other users have disappeared at filling stations in Abuja, Lagos, and Oyo following the intervention of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC.
Here in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital, Noble FM News reports that motorists who were seen on Monday scrambling to fill their tanks, amid long queues formed across filling stations in the metropolis are now buying premium motor spirit with ease.
Noble FM News also observed that long queues that characterized fuel stations in the commercial nerve center, in anticipation of yet another season of fuel scarcity have disappeared.
In the same vein, cab operators and commercial motorcyclists who were making brisk businesses as a result of the fuel scarcity have begun a full operation.
Sequel to the threat made by NNPC to shut down any filling station found guilty of hoarding fuel, the majority of the petro stations that deliberately put a stop to dispensing fuel to the members of the public have re-opened businesses.
It would be recalled that the Oyo State government had called on the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) to sanction any filling station found to be hoarding fuel.
