Nigerians may wait longer for the much desired relief, following pains and losses they have been facing over perennial fuel scarcity nationwide as the independent marketers, one of the critical stakeholders in the oil sector have disclosed that fuel scarcity may recur soon. The Daily Times recalls that Nigerians woke up to another round of petrol scarcity, few weeks to Christmas and New Year, even with its attendant implications of long queues, transport fare increases, over 100 per cent hike, especially in the pump price of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) from N145 per litre to over N200 per litre. But the crisis appears to be thinning out, as increased supply of petrol is currently being experienced, while long queues which characterised the past three weeks are fast fading out. The stakeholders in the oil and gas sector, on Thursday, however, painted a gloomy picture of state of the sector, indicating that fuel scarcity may still recur soon unless the government immediately address the problem of high landing cost of imported fuel and the supply gap, which they said, caused the scarcity experienced across the federation last December. The Minister of State for Petroleum, Dr Ibe Kachikwu, the Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Dr Maikanti Baru and other stakeholders in the oil and gas sector in their separate presentations, canvassed for deregulation of the sector and building of refineries to process product for local consumption. The stakeholders made this known during a Public Hearing organised by the Senate Committee on Petroleum, Upstream, to address the fuel scarcity challenge in Nigeria. Addressing the public hearing, Kachikwu recounted that a rumour on possible increase in the pump price of petroleum, aided by the media immediately led to the scarcity, which according to him, was capitalised upon by profiteers to worsen the case for Nigerians. Kachikwu also recalled that the high price of products across the Nigerian borders, which he said, stood at between N300 and N400 per litre had encouraged marketers to divert products to specific areas to make huge profits, hence the acute shortage across Nigeria.

The Nigerian military said on Thursday it had rescued one of the schoolgirls abducted by Boko Haram from the town of Chibok in 2014. The kidnapping of more than 270 students sparked international condemnation and heavy criticism of the Nigerian authorities at home along with a “Bring Back Our Girls” campaign. Salomi Pagu was found by troops deployed in the town of Pulka with another girl, and they “are in the safe custody of troops and receiving medical attention,” the military said in a statement. The second girl was not one of the abducted Chibok students.
