March 9, 2016 – Fuel Scarcity Hits Lagos: Filling Stations At Agege, Ojota, Ojuelegba & Isolo Not Selling Petrol


The scarcity of fuel persisted in Lagos today as motorists spent close to 6 hours at filling stations across the state to purchase petrol.

According to NAN, most of the filling stations at Costain, Ojuelegba, Agege, Isolo and Ojota areas were not dispensing the product.

Independent oil marketers’ filling stations at Iyana-Ipaja were selling at the pump prices of between N100 and N120 per litre.

A petrol attendant at a filling station in Iyana-Ipaja, said that he was directed by the managing director of the station to sell the product at N100 per litre.

At Mushin, long queue of vehicles prevented free flow of vehicles at Oando and Mobil filling stations, which were selling the product at the official pump price of N86.50.

Some motorists, who spoke with NAN, appealed to the Federal Government to find lasting solution to the lingering fuel scarcity problem.

    Crude oil is a curse to Nigeria finally. Without it, our politics would not have been as deadly as it is today. We have everything, yet we lack everything.

    If there is really fuel scarcity in Lagos, which means we are in trouble. because fuel is the power of all Nigerians. without fuel, we can’t transport our goods and also make a move. even at Agbor they sell 130 per litre. what is really going on in this country..? “yes. Nigeria said they deserve change now look at the change. things have automatically changed for worse. only what I know is that God will surely help us. if they like let them sell a litre of fuel for #300 the children of God most high must definitely survive.

    Nigerians! No government will eva satisfy us, yes! Buhari hs promised change but is he going 2 perform magic? Even God Almighty who we serve is nt Mr Biggs! We so much lack patient in ds country, someone even suggested jona hmmm! It would av bn a doom, we all kn d situation of ds country as of wen d president took ova but we pretend as if we don’t, instead of praying 4 d country we curse, so, who is deceiving who? D change is nt just d government bt it starts with u nd me, our ways of reasoning, God bless, pray 4 d president, pray 4 d country, b patient nd stop cursing as if u’re Mr President Nigeria would av turned heaven on earth, God bless Nigeria nd God bless President Buhari.

    Thanks Tonia 5f ur comment. But u c, the Nigerians u called impatience 2day have suffered 2 much okay. Nigerians ar living like an orphan under d tutilage of a wicked uncle/aunty. I think 1m months in an office is nt 2 small 2 stabilize fuel issue cos he’s ntnew 2 d@ system – afterall i wasn’t d 1 d@ asked him 2 make unachievable promises. S= let Nigerian experience d positive change dey voted 4 cos it is dia right.
