Ending fuel scarcity

This post has already been read 3836 times!

There can never be an end to scarcity of fuel in Nigeria as long as we rely on fuel importation, payment of subsidy and still regulate the price of fuel. There will always be intermittent scarcity because the supply will always be inadequate. The private depot owners will not be able to operate freely under the regulated market and the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation can’t meet the supply of all marketers. Consequently, the government should let the market be free and allow motorists to patronise any market of their choice. By that, the issue of scarcity will be solved permanently until Nigeria’s refineries are made to work at maximum capacity.

There is always short supply from all  the NNPC depots which makes it very difficult to service some marketers for two or more months, thereby making most filling stations to close shops. In order to save us from the lingering fuel scarcity, government should embark on building a new modern refinery and channel it through rail to all depots.
