PETROL SCARCITY ENDS APRIL 7, SAYS PETROLEUM MINISTER IN NEW ASSURANCE

Petroleum resources minister of state, Ibe Kachikwu, has said the long queue for petrol by motorists at filling stations nationwide, will end on April 7.

The minister who earlier said the petrol scarcity will not disappear until May, made the new promise while appearing before the senate committee on petroleum downstream at the national assembly, Abuja.

Kachikwu told the committee that the scarcity would end between April 6 and 7, blaming the shortage on the breakdown of 90 per cent of the nation’s oil depots, and the fact that it takes 14 day for imported product from Europe to arrive in Nigeria.

He apologized to Nigerians over his earlier comment that the shortage would remain till may, but rejected call for his resignation
