Following persistent fuel scarcity across the country, the Arewa Youths Alliance for Progress and Development (AYAPD), has urged the Group Chief Executive Officer of the NNPCL, Kolo Mele Kyari, and Managing Director of Duke Oil, NNPCL’s official trading company, to end petroleum scarcity in the country.
Comrade James Ishaku, the Secretary of the group in a statement stated that nothing has been done by the oil company to cushion the plight of Nigerians.
“We have reviewed the situation in the 19 Northern States and the Federal Capital Territory, the situation has largely remained the same. The affected public servants, who are saddled with the responsibility of ensuring Energy Security have not deemed it necessary to as a matter of courtesy reply or make effort to ease the burden from Nigerians.”
They called on Nigerians whose vehicles were damaged as a result of the imported methanol-contaminated PMS, and yet to be compensated to join the team on Friday, 18th November 2022 at the Head office of Duke Oil, located at No. 25 Mississippi Street Maitama, Abuja.
According to the statement: “We shall address the press and unveil our next line of civil actions to press for the compensation for Nigerians whose means of transportation and feeding were damaged by the bad fuel, ensure adequate supply of PMS so as to suppress inflation and guarantee the security of lives of Nigerians amidst the threat of terror attack.”
