Fuel Scarcity will Soon Ease Out – DPR


The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) has assured Nigerians today that the lingering fuel scarcity across the country will come to an end in the next few days.

Mordecai Ladan, the Director of DPR, gave the assurance after his inspection visit to some private depots in Lagos.

Ladan said: “Petroleum products are coming in gradually; in most of the depots visited, some are being discharged, while there is assurance that some will come in again within 48 hours.

“I think with all we have seen now in the depots visited, petrol should be available in all filling stations across the country in few days time.

“The scarcity of petrol will soon ease out in days to come,” he assured Nigerians.
