Some accredited oil subsidy marketers on Thursday said the failure of Federal Government to release the approved N413 billion subsidy debt was disrupting their fuel importation schedule.

The marketers made their feelings known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.

They said that they were concerned that the money had not been released one week after the approval was granted.

The marketers alleged that the delay was affecting loading activities at depots and had led to the shutting down of some filling stations due to non-availability of petroleum products.

The spokesperson for the marketers, who pleaded for anonymity, stated that “Government, through the Central Bank of Nigeria, has not released any subsidy claims as promised.

“As I am talking to you we have been directed by the CBN to go and meet the Debt Management Office for clarification.

“All our efforts to get the said money have been in vain and to start importing has been a serious problem.

“There is no money to back up the cheques presented to the marketers.

“We do not even know the basis for the clarification of the cheques, but we are aware that there is no money in the account.

“It is like giving the marketers cheques only to discover that there was no money in the account.

“Nothing like importing now because all marketers are angry because of the failed promised.” The market said “If you go outside Lagos you know how much they are selling fuel per litre now, it is the last stock that we are selling now.

“It is unfortunate that the Department of Petroleum (DPR) is saying that we are hoarding the products, which is not the truth.

“We have not collected a single coin from the money.

“If not the fact that some of the marketers are making some money from other products, how do you think we will be able to get anything for now?

“We have been summoned by DPR for a meeting this morning to settle the crisis; we are only managing what we have in stock at present.”

The Federal Government, had on November 3, approved the sum of N413 billion to petroleum products marketers as the outstanding payment for subsidy claims. (NAN)
