Senate to investigate cause of persistent fuel scarcity

The Senate has instructed its Committees on Petroleum Upstream and Downstream to investigate the root cause of the persistent fuel scarcity across the country.

A federal lawmaker, Senator Abdul Ningi, raised a motion on the issue at plenary saying Nigerians need to know what is responsible for the lingering fuel crises in the country, which has so far defied solutions from government.

Long queues have continued to be a permanent feature at petrol stations across the country despite assurances from the federal Government that the situation with oil marketers would be resolved.
