The Nigerian government has begun a 15-day emergency supply to end the fuel scarcity nationwide.

The South West Regional Coordinator of the NMDPRA, Engr. Ayo Cardoso disclosed this in a statement.

DAILY POST reports that fuel scarcity has lingered across Nigeria for days.

Although the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited assured that it had sufficient petrol to go around the country, the scarcity has persisted.

Corroborating NNPCL’s position, Cardoso said barely two days ago, the country received 300 million litres of Premium Motor Spirit.

He stressed that Nigerians do not need to panic as the fuel queue will soon vanish.

“As I said earlier, there would be enough fuel across Nigeria soon. We have received over 300 million litres as of Tuesday.

“More have arrived, but I can’t give you the figure. Vessels will keep arriving in Nigeria for 15 days, which started counting on Monday, and we will keep distributing the product nationwide.

“The masses should not panic; all these will soon vanish. We are not prioritising anywhere; each state has its allocation to be delivered accordingly,” Cardoso stated.
