The Federal Government on Tuesday met with major oil marketers in the country in Nigeria’s capital, Abuja.

Tuesday’s meeting, which comes at a time Nigerians are still counting the costs of the fuel crisis which disrupted the plans of millions for the Yuletide, was held inside the Presidential Villa.

Those in attendance include the Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari; Minister of State for Petroleum, Ibe Kachikwu; Group Managing Director of the NNPC, Maikanti Baru, the PENGASSAN Leadership, and the Director-General of Department of State Services, among others.

A day earlier, in his New Year address, President Muhammadu Buhari told Nigerians he is determined to get to the root of the fuel scarcity in the country and prevent those behind it from inflicting hardship on Nigerians again.
