March 13, 2016 – Fuel Scarcity In Uyo Akwa Ibom State: NNPC Mega Filling Station Sealed Up By DPR For Refusing To Sell Petrol To The Public

DPR (the Department of Petroleum Resources) in Akwa Ibom, said it had sealed the NNPC mega filling station in Uyo, for allegedly hoarding petrol.

The Controller (Operations) in charge of Akwa Ibom and Cross River, Mr Bassey Nkanga, told NAN in Eket on Sunday that the mega station had amassed the product in its storage tanks, but refused to sell it to members of the public.

Nkanga, however, said that although the state was experiencing shortage of the product, the situation was not peculiar to the area.
He appealed to residents of the state to be patient as government was working hard to redress the problem.

The fuel scarcity is not experienced only in Akwa Ibom; it is a national problem.
“Yesterday, we got two trucks of the product for Uyo. We are monitoring the sale of the product to see if there will be any illegality,” Nkanga said.

Meanwhile, motorists in the state have continued to express displeasure at situation created by the scarcity of the product.

This is because a litre of the product now sells for between N170 and N200 in Eket and environs and transport fares in the area have increased as a result.

    If NNPC could join in this wickedness, what virtue is left to protect by any other filling station? I guess there is. Does anybody in this place know about the filling station called NORTHWEST, in Calabar? This is the best filling station in the world. Yes, you heard me right–in the whole wide world. It sells petrol every given day, except the sun did not sleep well. The best of it all is that it sells at N86.5/liter. Kero at N50/liter.

    Owned by a woman(from Edo, I guess), other independent marketters fight her tooth and nail because she spoils their devillish show. May the prayers of the many poor Nigerians she has been helping by her goodwill ensure her safety IJN! Amen!
