The group managing director of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Maikanti Baru, has promised that the lingering fuel scarcity will end this weekend.
Mr Baru gave the assurance while speaking to journalists after closing an illegal petrol depot in Abuja yesterday December 27th.
In his words: “I promise by the weekend, most of the abrasions we’ve been noticing will disappear. You could see that we are winning the war.
“The fuel queues have significantly subsided in Abuja.
“In Lagos, they’ve almost become none existent and, of course, we are pushing it to the other cities as well as to the hinterlands.”
