Fuel ScarcityMay day celebrations across Nigeria is taking place amidst acute fuel scarcity and its attendant pains.

In Ibadan the Oyo State capital, residents are having a really difficult time getting petrol as long queues are observed in the few filling stations where petrol is available.

Only one major marketer was seen selling at pump price while the few independent marketers who have the product are selling between N120 and N150 per litre.

Some of the residents who spoke to Channels Television said that they had to queue for at least four to six hours to get the fuel.

They appealed to the Federal Government to find an urgent solution to the crisis.
