₦212 Price: Fuel Pumps Go-Dry as Stations Close to Customers
Most filling stations in Ibadan metropolis have closed to customers, thereby hindering motorists from assessing the product.
Radio Nigeria correspondent, who monitored the situation, reports that some major marketers selling the product at N162 were not selling while few that were selling had an abysmal long queue of vehicle.
Radio Nigeria also observed that those selling between N165 and N170 closed their stations.
Some motorists and motorcyclists including Mr Taiwo Olorunda and Hassan Lawal who spoke with Radio Nigeria attributed the development to a rumour making the round that the Federal Government was planning to increase the pump price to N212
Our correspondent reports that some motorists at U.I, who were obviously not happy over the new pump price, almost attacked him while he was trying to get their reactions on the development.
