Long queues have returned in fuel stations in the Sokoto state capital.
In many petrol stations owned by independent marketers, the product was not being sold while those who were selling it, sold the product about N150.
The queues were noticed at filing stations owned by major marketers as they complied with the pump price.
Many motorists complained of spending several hours waiting to get the product at such filing stations.
”The situation was not like this yesterday. All of a sudden, this queue just emerged today, we don’t know what caused this problem,” a motorist Aliyu Musa stated.
Operations Controller of the Department of Petroleum Resources ( DPR), in Sokoto, Mr Mohammed Makera said the situation was a nationwide problem, and assured that efforts were on by the federal government to ensure adequate supply of petroleum products nationwide.
