House Moves To End Fuel Scarcity

The House of Representatives has mandated relevant security agencies to fish out oil marketers and other economic saboteurs responsible for the fuel scarcity across the country.

This is sequel to a motion of urgent public importance, by the lawmaker from kogi state Leke Abejide during plenary in Abuja on the Need for the NNPC Limited and other regulators in the petroleum industry to end the fuel scarcity across the country.

The lawmaker expressed the worry that due to the scarcity, Nigerians are exposed to all sorts of hardship which has resulted in a hike in transportation fares and high cost of food items.

The House urged the NNPC Limited as a sole importer to urgently ease off the queues in Filling Stations.

It also mandated the relevant House Committees to investigate the matter within 48 hours and report to the House.

The lower chamber invited the relevant regulatory authority Mainstream and Downstream Petroleum Resources to appear before the Leadership of the House of Representatives Thursday this week.
