Fuel Crisis: DSS Talks Tough, Gives NNPC, Oil Marketers, 48 Hours To Clear Queue, Resolve Crisis

Worried by the crushing fuel scarcity in most parts of the Country, the Department of State Services, DSS, is talking tough.

On Thursday, December 8, 2022, the Service issued an ultimatum to the Nigerian National Petroleum Compay Limited, NNPC, Independent Marketers Association of Nigeria, IPMAN, and all Stakeholders responsible for the distribution of fuel to petrol stations to clear the queues within 48 hours. Otherwise, the DSS said, it would begin a manhunt for all those responsible for the hardship Nigerians are going through over fuel crisis.

The Spokesperson for the Service, Dr Peter Afunanya, passed on the ultimatum to them in Abuja after the Director General of the DSS, Yusuf Magaji Bichi, held a meeting with all the Stakeholders at the Service’s Headquarters.

Nigerians have suffered a very difficult period, for weeks, over the scarcity of fuel in the Country.

The queues have been unending, thus, grounding economic and social activities to a halt.

Not even the Aviation Industry is spared. On Wednesday, Airpeace, one of the Airlines, warned its passengers of delayed flights due to tye scarcity of Aviation fuel.

Those at the meeting with the DG, according to reports, were: NNPC, PTD, NUPENG, NARTO, MOWAN, DEPMAN and IPMAN.
