Nigeria’s Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu, on Thursday assured state governors that the current fuel scarcity the country is experiencing will end in the next 48 hours.
This is according to Godwin Obaseki, the governor of Edo state, who spoke after the national executive council meeting on Thursday.
“We discussed the issue of fuel supply. As you know, there has been challenges of fuel supply in the country”, Obaseki said.
“The Minister of State for Petroleum Resources assured council that within the next 48hours, fuel supply will be restored nationwide because there is enough fuel in our strategic reserves.
“He said the ministry has released fuel from these reserves and it expects distribution will reach all parts of the country within the next 48 hours.”
