Why there are queues at filling stations in Maiduguri

Published by The Nation on Sat, 20 Feb 2021


The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) says queues observed in some filling stations in Maiduguri are caused by panic buying by motorists on the assumption that the price of petrol would soon increase.Mr Ibrahim Ciroma, North East Zonal Operations Controller of DPR, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Maiduguri on Friday that the assumption was unfounded because Maiduguri received between 15 and 20 trucks of petrol daily.Ciroma urged motorists not to panic as the DPR was on top of the situation.According to him, there is no cause for alarm.Maiduguri receives between 15 and 20 trucks of petrol daily and we are monitoring all filling stations to ensure that no one hoards or sells above the official pump price of N162 per litre.I have called the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) in the state to appeal against any malpractice from the members.IPMAN has also constituted a committee to ensure its members sell at the approved price and nobody is hoarding the commodity, Ciroma said.The controller reiterated the commitment of DPR to ensure steady supply of fuel to Borno.He said to ensure there were no hitches, some staff hitherto directed to stay at home because of COVID-19, had been recalled for effective monitoring of filling stations.
