Fuel Crisis: PDP Slams APC,Buhari’s Government For Incompetence

For its failure to arrest the lingering fuel scarcity, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), listed several indicators as showing that the President Muhammadu Buhari administration has failed its constitutional duty to guarantee the security and welfare of the people. The PDP made this known in a statement issued by its publicity secretary, Debo Ologunagba .According to the PDP, the country is in a chaotic situation that pointed to the fact the Buhari’s government had come to the end of the road in governance and had nothing else to offer Nigerian. The party noted, that such a situation further confirmed that the Buhari administration is now on autopilot, with its central command structure in disarray.

Nigeria’s House of Representatives has waded into the current fuel scarcity in the country and promised a punitive measure against erring firms. The lower chamber guaranteed Nigerians that it would sanction the oil firms responsible for the importation of the debased petrol into the country. This comes as the scarcity of petrol is spiraling out of control in major cities in Nigeria including Lagos and Abuja with a litre of petrol selling as high as N700 in some parts and N400 in others.

The Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Limited disclosed earlier that it would deliver over 1.7 billion litres of PMS on marine and on land. It also said that it had no plans to adjust the current price of PMS in the market but despite this promise, many Nigerians are now sleeping at filling stations waiting to buy illusive fuel.
