There are strong indications that, fuel scarcity will persist in major cities, such as the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Lagos and Port Harcourt among others.
This followed rumoured low quality fuel being sold at some Filling Stations across the country.
Some petroleum marketers whispered to Page3news.com that fuel scarcity will persist in Lagos and other parts of the country until depots are restocked with adequate and quality products.
The marketers however blamed the current scarcity on the supply of a wrong specification of petrol in some parts of the country.
They noted that the directive to withdraw the product from the market even after distribution to many filling stations across Lagos and other areas created a supply shortfall, thereby, leading to panic buying.
Reports have it that the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Ltd; is working to ensure that this disruption to the supply chain is addressed as soon as possible.
However, there is the challenge of logistics and how to compensate those who were supplied with the adulterated products.
According to the reports, Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC is working with marketers on this and once the depots are restocked, tankers will start loading and supply will improve across the country.
Dependable sources disclosed that queues will remain at the petrol stations because of the panic already created.
