There will be No Fuel Scarcity During Festive Period – FG Assure Nigerians


Federal Government has assured Nigerians that it is taking proactive steps to ensure that Nigerians do not experience end-of-the-year scarcity of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), also known as petrol, in 2018 as was the case in 2017 and previous years.

This was as it regretted Nigerians had grueling experiences during the 2017 fuel scarcity, which began on November 8 and did not stop until first quarter of 2018.

The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR), an agency under the Federal Ministry of Petroleum Resources, gave the assurance on Tuesday at the 2018 annual DPR/petroleum marketers’ meeting held at Harry’s Events and Suites, New Adeoyo Road, Off Moshood Abiola Way (Ring Road), Ibadan, Oyo State and organised by the Ibadan Field Office of the agency.

The meeting entitled: ‘Making Safety and Integrity the Hallmark of our Business,’ was attended by Operations Controller, DPR, Ibadan, Mr. Oluyemi Olaonipekun; Head of Operations, DPR Ibadan Operations, Mr. Danjuma Sadiq; Chairman of Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN), Alhaji Raheem Tayo, as well as major and independent petroleum marketers, among other stakeholders.
