Fuel supply stabilises in Kaduna


The long queues at filling stations in Kaduna State have disappeared following restoration of normal fuel supply in parts of the state, Naija247news reports.

A cross-section of motorists told oFuel_Scarcity_Abujaur reporter on Monday in Kaduna that most filling stations had supplies and were selling at the government approved pump price of N97 per litre.

Mr Danjuma Isa , a motorist, who purchased the product at Ed-Jen filling station along Ahmadu Bello Way, Kaduna, told our reportersthat: “As you can see there is no queue, hardly for one to spend more than 15 minutes waiting to purchase the petrol.’’

However, Isa urged the Federal Government to be proactive in taking measures at ensuring stability in the oil industry.

He also called on marketers to stop hoarding petroleum products or creating artificial scarcity.

Another motorist, Mr Peter Anthony, who was seen driving out of one of the stations, said he only queued for about 10 minutes.

Anthony commended the government for normalising the fuel supply system, saying that petrol was key to national development.

The Manager of Edi-Jen filling station in Kaduna metropolis, Mr Gabriel Nathaniel, told our reporter that they have been experiencing normal queues “because of the stable supply’’.

Nathaniel assured that the station would continue to satisfy customers once they have the product in stock and hope the supply would remain stable.

On his part, Mr Thomas Ishaku, expressed optimism that the situation would be sustained to prevent further hardship on ordinary citizens.

Naija247news  also reports that almost all the filling stations in Kaduna metropolis are selling petroleum products due to the stability in supply.
