Operations Controller of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria, lPMAN, Mr Mike Osatuyi, had earlier said members of the association have started lifting petrol from the facility at the government-regulated price.

He said: “I can confirm that our members have started lifting at the N172 per litre government-regulated price. If the supply is sustained, we look forward to achieving stability in the sector.”

A similar statement was made by Chief Timpre Sylva, Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, who was in Lagos to examine certain filling stallions. He claimed that the government had taken steps to improve the product’s supply across the country.

He said: “I observed the availability of the product in the state. Petrol is everywhere both in Lagos and Abuja. I visited many stations in Ikeja and the mainland and from every indication, there is a product everywhere. I want to assure Nigerians that the queues will disappear in a matter of days.

“The situation which we witness in Lagos has been achieved in 15 states across the country. The President has ordered that queues must be cleared immediately.”
