Personal Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Social Media, Mrs. Lauretta Onochie has reacted to the rumours that there may be fuel scarcity in Nigeria. The Presidential Aide on her official and verified Twitter handle blasted some Nigerians who are punishing ordinary Nigerians by creating artificial fuel scarcity in the country. The Delta State born politician said that we are our own problem not the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC. He went further to state that it is unfair for some Nigerians to want to create artificial fuel scarcity. Mrs. Onochie had quoted the Group Managing Director of NNPC, Kyari who said that there is no plan to increase the price of fuel in the month of May. It was reported today that fuel scarcity has hit the Federal Capital Territory Abuja after vehicles were seen queueing at the petrol stations for a long time thereby leading to the increase in the price of transport fare in FCT.
Below are some photos from petrol stations in Abuja.
Below are what some Nigerians are saying about it on Twitter.
