A group, the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC) has described the ongoing fuel crisis in the United Kingdom as an opportunity for Nigerians to appreciate President Muhammadu Buhari whose administration has registered near zero fuel queues in the six years of his administration.

In a press statement issued on Wednesday by its director, Professor Ishaq, he said Britain had been enmeshed in fuel shortages resulting in long queues at petrol stations in the past two weeks.

Of a total of 8,000 filling stations in Britain, up to two-thirds of 5,500 fuel stations have run out of supply.

He said the British army had been put on red alert to intervene, while the government of Boris Johnson had offered temporary visas to 5,000 foreign fuel tanker drivers.
