Scarcity of Premium Motor Spirit, PMS, otherwise known as petrol, hit Lagos State on Wednesday as long queue of vehicles were seen at various filling stations.
DAILY POST observed that while some of the independent marketer claimed that petrol was not available for sale, some that were selling sold the product at the rate of N120 per litre rather than the official pump price of N87. When DAILY POST visited some filling stations at Iyana-Ejigbo area on Wednesday, they were under lock and keys while others were selling at high price. When this reporter tried to inquire from one of the fuel attendants, she simply replied, ‘go and ask Buhari’.
Fuel Scarcity Hits Lagos, Litre Goes For ₦120?? Yes! While Speaking with DAILY POST, a motorcyclist, who gave his name as Oriade complained bitterly that he managed to buy five litres from black marketers for N700.
“Bro, I just bought five litres for N700 around Chris Idowu. This sudden fuel scarcity is annoying. I have gone to all the filling stations around Ejigbo here but no one is selling. Even the people selling are killing us with price, aside the queue”, she said. Oriade called on the federal government to do something about it before it went out of control.
