A Yuletide without Fuel Scarcity – Nigerians appreciate FG’s efforts
ADMITTEDLY there is no time of the year when union strikes and the scarcity of petroleum products are convenient and welcome.
But whenever it comes at Christmas/New Year season (the Yuletide), the experience is always nightmarish and excruciating to all and sundry.
This severely disrupts the end-of-year frenzy of activities both in the major urban centres and the rural areas which usually receive large numbers of homecoming indigenes.
The suffering is shared by our hordes of countrymen and families arriving from the Diaspora. Everybody is forced to overshoot his/her seasonal budgets.
These are important reasons that the government and all interest groups involved in the supply chain of petroleum products jointly ensured that adequate supply are available, and outstanding debts are sorted.
CityNews speaks to a cross section of Nigerians and they all agreed and appreciated the Federal government for preventing the ”annual Yuletide anguish” due to fuel scarcity.
They however, advised the Federal government to adopt a sustainable system that will lesser the government financial burden, ensure steady supply of petroleum products, encourage local refinery to function and prevent re occurrence of petroleum products scarcity.
