Fuel Scarcity Cripples Business Activities In Osun

Fuel scarcity has hit the State of Osun, crippling business activities in the state for some days now.

It was gathered that the scarcity is connected to a strike by petroleum marketers in the state.

The marketers, according to a report by the News Agency of Nigeria, are said to be anticipating a downward review of the pump price of fuel.

A source told nan that the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria in Osun had directed its members to stop lifting fuel.

Almost all filling stations along the Gbongan-Osogbo Road, including the NNPC Mega Station, had stopped selling fuel since 6 October.

In Ile-Ife, long queues could be seen at various communities, while filling stations along Ede road were under lock and key. Long queues were also seen at Ilesa, Oke-Ogbo and Ijebu-Ijesa Road.

Only one filling station was selling fuel at Ikirun but the station closed early on Saturday.
