Nigerian govt reveals those behind fuel scarcity.

Nigerian government has identified those behind the current fuel scarcity​.​

​Director General of the National Orientation Agency (NOA), Dr Garba Abari,​ said​ the ​situation was caused by ​oil ​marketers​.

In a statement on Saturday, ​Abari said the hoarding is an intentional ploy​ to force government to increase the pump price of the petrol.

Abari said: “I call on Nigerians to ask why and how without any sign of scarcity, they suddenly woke up to most petrol stations across the country not selling fuel instantaneously.

“In spite of increase supplies by the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, petroleum marketers have resorted to deliberate hoarding in order to subject Nigerians to unwarranted hardship during this yuletide.

“This is an unpatriotic practice by the petroleum marketers.”

The NOA boss called for a thorough investigation into the fuel scarcity with a view to bringing unpatriotic individuals behind the act to book.

He, however, assured Nigerians that government was doing everything possible to ensure that the ugly situation was speedily resolved.

Abari expressed confidence that Nigerians would soon have a sigh of relief within the remaining days of the year.
