Most Akure Filling Stations Not Selling Fuel

Some filling stations in Akure, Ondo State capital are not selling petrol to residents.

While some are completely shut, others open but not selling fuel.

Only a few filling stations in Road Block Arakale, Ondo, Irese, Oke-Aro Adesida and Lafe areas are selling the product between one hundred and sixty-nine naira and one hundred and sixty-five Naira as against the government approved price of one hundred and sixty-three naira per litre. 

Long queues were also noticed in the few filling stations dispensing fuel.

When Radio Nigeria correspondent sought to know the reason for the development, managers of the filling stations declined comments.

In an interview, a taxi driver, Mr Biodun Olajimi called on the Department of Petroleum Resources, DPR, to prevent petrol marketers from hoarding the product.
