In a surprising development, long vehicular queues at petrol stations have surfaced in Lagos State.
Nigerians are wondering why there is a shortage of premium motor spirit (PMS), more commonly known as petrol, as long queues for petrol appear on the streets of Lagos.
Due to a lack of petrol, Abuja residents have had trouble getting to work for the past three weeks, paying double what they once did. It appears that the lines have now reached Lagos, the commercial hub of Nigeria.
Long lines have been seen in petrol stations across the city on Monday, October 24, according to reports, as fuel scarcity has a negative impact on commuters.
On Tuesday, there appeared to be longer lines in many areas of Lagos, including the city’s commercial centre of Ikeja, spreading from Lekki on Lagos Island to mainland Lagos.
Authorities are yet to explain the reasons for the fuel scarcity and queues at the time of filing this report.
