The existing fuel scarcity specifically in Lagos could get worse adhering to technological mistake that has actually required the Satelite Depot to shuts down.
The depot supposedly shuts down at the weekend break, additionally deteriorating circulation initiatives in the state.
Talking to the LEADERSHIP on telephone , Chairman Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) Satelite Depot, Mr Alamu Ayo stated”
As I speak with you now, the depot is not functional, it broke down a few days ago worsening distribution efforts of marketers”.

We (Marketers) the whole of last week were given between 6-8 trucks daily as against 102-105 trucks in the past.
If we maintain that tempo, we will not have this long queues in Lagos, but the truth about the matter is that there is no product, and we are at the moment rationing what we have”.
He said that government entered into an MOU with the marketers in which they (Marketers) were assured of product availability by first week in May, so if the products arrive we will sell but for now there is nothing we can do.
