Fuel scarcity: Shehu Sani reveals those responsible

Former Nigerian lawmaker and social critic, Shehu Sani has blamed the recurring fuel scarcity on the major oil marketers.

The former lawmaker argued that neither President Muhammadu Buhari nor the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited, NNPCL, had officially announced an increase in the pump price of petroleum.

Senator Sani disclosed this in a post via his verified Twitter handle on Sunday.

Recall that the country has been hit by a recurring fuel scarcity across the states, with some petroleum filling stations selling a litre of Premium Motor Spirits, PMS, as high as N500.

However, the social critic argued that since President Muhammadu Buhari had not officially increased the price of PMS, the major oil marketers should be held accountable.

He wrote: “It’s evident that the FG or the NNPCL has not officially increased the pump price of petrol. The major marketers unilaterally did that. They are also the architect of the shortages. It’s time to call them out. What’s the use of subsidy with this outrageous price?”
