The Independent Petroleum Marketers of Nigeria, Nigerian Upstream Petroleum Regulatory Commission and other stakeholders, have been summoned by the Department of State Service in Kano State to immediately resolve the lingering fuel scarcity in the state.
According to a senior official of the DSS, a litre of fuel is selling between N310 and N320. However, some of the challenges being faced includes high cost of petrol supply to the northern part of the nation, poor road that have resulted in consistent damaging of trucks and the Federal government’s refusal to settle the bridging claims among others.
In the same vein, the Department of Petroleum Resources, had set up a three man team for monitoring supplies in Kano, which would commence operations Tuesday (today) to ensure uninterrupted supply of the commodity to filling stations in the state.
The DPR was said to have assured the DSS of ensuring full compliance of uninterrupted supply of fuel that would in the next few days free Kano from the long queues of motorists at filling stations.
