President Muhammadu Buhari has described the lingering nationwide fuel scarcity as “regrettable”. He sympathised with all Nigerians and assured that efforts were being made to find a solution to the problem.
The President said in a statement issued on Sunday in Abuja: “The fuel scarcity being experienced nationwide is regrettable. I sympathise with all Nigerians, on having to endure needless fuel queues. I’m being regularly briefed, especially on the NNPC’s interventions to ensure that there is enough petrol available during this period and beyond.
“I have the NNPC’s assurance that the situation will improve significantly over the next few days, as new shipments and supplies are distributed across the country.
“I have also directed the regulators to step up their surveillance and bring an end to hoarding and price inflation by marketers.”
