BREAKING! Fuel Price Increased To N310/Ltr In Nigeria As Scarcity Bites Harder



Fuel Price


TRIXX NG reports that fuel price has been increased to N310/Ltr in some filling stations in Nigeria as the scarcity bites harder.

For some weeks, it’s been difficult for Nigerians to have access to fuel without going through long queues that render their day unproductive. Activities have been literally crippled in some parts of the country due to the effect of the fuel scarcity that continues to linger on.

Some filling stations in Lagos and Ogun state have had to adjust their pricing system severally due to the scarcity and reports have it that it now sells for as much as N310/ltr.

According to the NNPC’s Executive Vice President, Downstream, Mister Adeyemi Adetunju, fuel queues in Lagos State and Abuja is due to some construction projects going on in the state.

“The recent queues in Lagos are largely due to ongoing road infrastructure projects around Apapa and access road challenges in some parts of Lagos depots,” he said. “The gridlock is easing out and NNPC has programmed vessels and trucks to unconstrained depots and massive load outs from depots to various states are closely being monitored.”

“Abuja is impacted by the challenges recorded in Lagos. NNPC Retail and key marketers have intensified dedicated loading into Abuja to restore normalcy as soon as possible.”

However, he assured Nigerians of swift actions to savage the situation faced.

“We want to reassure all Nigerians that NNPC has sufficient products, and we significantly increased product loading including 24-hour operations in selected depots and extended hours at strategic stations to ensure products sufficiency nationwide,”
