Despite DSS Ultimatum, Petrol Scarcity Persists In States

Forty-eight hours after the expiration of the ultimatum by the Department of State Services (DSS) to stakeholders in the oil sector, petrol scarcity has persisted in Plateau, Kaduna, Kogi and Kano states, and other parts of the country, Daily Trust reports.

The DSS, at a meeting with the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL), Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN), Major Oil Marketers Association of Nigeria (MOMAN), Depot and Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (DAPMAN) and Petroleum Tanker Drivers (PTD) on Thursday, gave the stakeholders a 48-hour ultimatum to end the fuel scarcity to avert incitement or security breach in the country.

The stakeholders had agreed to resolve the crisis.

But Daily Trust observed on Monday that long queues were yet to disappear in major cities, making black marketers have a field day, selling the commodity for as much as N350 per litre.
