The Federal Government has blamed the ongoing fuel scarcity on increased demand by nations in temperate regions.Addressing State House correspondents after a Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, yesterday, Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, said: “This is winter period. There is always more demand for refined products from petroleum ‎during winter in the colder countries. This is what we are experiencing now.”

Notwithstanding, he said the Council directed the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachukwu and the Group Managing Director (GMD) of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Maikanti Baru, to end the situation before the end of the week.Mohammed also insisted: “The government has no intention at all to increase the pump price of petrol.”

Marketers meanwhile are blaming the NNPC for alleged favouritism in distribution of petrol.The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) monitoring team visited five depots: Obat, Sahara, Nipco, Dee Jones and Aiteo yesterday and discovered an uneven allocation of products.

Consequently, the Assistant Director, Retail Outlets Monitoring, Downstream Division, DPR, Mrs. Ijeoma Otti-Onyeri, who led the team, compelled private depots with products to give priority to Lagos State in order to end scarcity.She ordered that 80 per cent of what was being loaded should be delivered to Lagos.

President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday restated his administration’s readiness not to renege on his promise to fight corruption and sustain war against the deadly Boko Haram insurgency in the Northeast.Buhari gave the assurance at the Emir of Kano’s palace when he paid Emir Muhammadu Sanusi homage.

The president who articulated the achievement of his government particularly in clipping the wings of the insurgents, applauded the support and loyalty of Kano people to the APC government.Buhari who was on a two-day official visit to Kano said the Federal Government change agenda was for the good of Nigerians.

Responding, emir Sanusi commended the president for finding time to visit Kano and reminded him that Kano residents would hope to witness another of such visit.


President Buhari was later led to the commissioning of Giginyu General hospital, which was named after him, and a paediatric hospital at Zoo road.Buhari applauded the development stride of Governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, urging other Northern governments to emulate him.

Earlier, Ganduje reminded that in line with his vision to provide access and affordable health care services, he decided to complete the two ultra modern hospitals after several years of abandonment by successive governments.

President Donald Trump recognized the disputed city of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital Wednesday, a historic decision that overturns decades of US policy and risks triggering a fresh spasm of violence in the Middle East.
“Israel is a sovereign nation with the right like every other sovereign nation to determine its own capital,” the US leader said in a speech from the White House.

“Acknowledging this as a fact is a necessary condition for achieving peace,” added the US leader, declaring: “It is time to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.”


“This is nothing more or less than a recognition of reality. It is also the right thing to do.”

Trump’s announcement plunges the United States into a decades-long dispute over a city considered holy by Jews, Muslims and Christians, and flies in the face of warnings from US allies and leaders across the Middle East.

The US president also kicked off the process of moving the American embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, making good on a campaign promise dear to evangelical Christian and right-wing Jewish voters — as well as donors.
