Nigeria: Residents Groan As Fuel Crisis Worsens in FCT

Shares 0

Abuja — Though the fuel crisis, which surfaced across major cities last month has subsided in some states, residents of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) are yet to see relief as the situation continues to worsen.

Residents, who spoke with The Guardian said the situation is now unbearable as businesses are suffocating under loss of man-hour and money.

Indeed, the supply gap, which left long queues and heavy traffic deadlock across the city may be connected to product diversion by marketers for more gains, an insider at the Suleja deport has revealed.

The source said products meant for the FCT are being diverted to neighbouring states, where marketers are sure of selling at higher prices.

A resident, who is Chief Executive Officer of Amco Travels, Muhammed Ahmed, said the prevailing fuel crisis has added to losses by his organisation, worsening the operating business environment in the capital city.
