Fuel scarcity resurfaces in Ilorin as marketers hike price

Date: 2022-12-01

Another round of fuel scarcity has resurfaced in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital.

DAILY POST reports that the scarcity was noticed about two days ago amid long queues of motorists in a few fuel stations with the product.

Recall that the last fuel scarcity in Ilorin occurred following the crisis of leadership within the Petrol Tanker Drivers Union of Oke-Ogun, Saki, in Oyo State which led to disruption in the supply of fuel to Kwara State.

Efforts to reach officials of the Department of Petroleum Resources, DPR, in Ilorin on Wednesday proved abortive.

Some of the filling stations owned by independent marketers now sell the product at between N220, N230, N250 or N280 per litre.

The major marketers, however, have retained the official pump price of N190 or N195 per litre though without a stable supply of the product.

Black marketers of the product have also capitalised on the scarcity to return to their usual business.

From the Maraba axis to Zango-Kulende area of the Ilorin metropolis, gallons are displayed along the road to announce the availability of the product by hawkers though at a high cost.

A four-litre gallon of petrol is sold at between N1,600 or N1,800, translating to N400 per litre.

A dealer of one of the TotalEnergies filling stations in Ilorin who confided in our correspondent disclosed that the scarcity was caused by low supply from Lagos depot.

In another reaction, an independent marketer, Tajudeen Balogun of Ara-Oje filling station, Abdulazeez Attah Road, Ilorin, said “since we don’t refine our crude oil in the country but rely on importation there will always be a short supply of the product.”

He said until we put our house in order and do the needful, Nigeria will continue to face the perennial fuel crisis.
