Nigeria is gradually sliding into a major fuel crisis as long queues have resurfaced in major cities across the country, including Lagos, South West and South East states as well as the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.

In some areas in Lagos on Monday, petrol stations were not selling the products at all, while some dispensed the product under a chaotic atmosphere as people fought to get their tanks filled.

Though, the Operations Controller of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN), Mr Mike Osatuyi said they currently buy the product from the depot at about N177 per litre, he, however, said they were still watching the situation and would comment on the reason for the queues around Wednesday

But the IPMAN Chairman of NNPC Depot Ore, Western Zone of Nigeria, Engineer Shina Amoo, told New Telegraph that there was scarcity of the product at the private depots.

Giving further reasons, he said they had not been buying from government depots, stating that they buy the product from the private depots for about N177 per litre.
