Fuel Scarcity Bites Hard In Ilorin

Residents of Ilorin, Kwara State capital, have continued to feel the impact of Fuel Scarcity.

There were long queues at the few Filling Stations dispensing fuel.

It was gathered that many filling stations, owned by independent marketers, remained shut.

But majority owned by major marketers did not dispense.

Black marketers on Maraba motor park, Murtala Muhammed Way, sold a five-litre gallon for N1,200, against the normal N750.

Most commuters and motorists lamented fuel hoarding, and appealed to the Federal Government to fix the problem.

They frowned at the poor handling of issues affecting the people, especially fuel scarcity.

Chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) Aliyu Issa-Ore said the scarcity had inflicted hardship on union members.

Issa-Ore regretted that many filling stations adjusted their meters athough fares were not increased.

He, therefore, urged the Federal Government to intervene to ameliorate the suffering.
