Elections: INEC Set To Hold High-Level Meeting With NNPC As Fuel Scarcity Lingers

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it will meet with the Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Limited to address the fuel crisis across the country ahead of the general elections in February and March.

Nigeria has since been grappling with prolonged petrol scarcity, which has been attributed to inadequate supply of the product by the NNPCL, the sole importer of Premium Motor Spirit.
