Mr Hammed Fashola, the National Vice President of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria blamed the disruption in the supply chain of the product coupled with the public holiday for the development.

Fashola stressed that the supply disruption started before the holidays, he also said it would ease off from Wednesday after the Easter holiday.

I think there is a little disruption in supply. The Easter holiday from Friday to Monday also added to the situation. I think from Wednesday it will ease off. The holiday is almost four days off; it will have its effect. But I am sure by Wednesday it will start getting better. However, there was little problem with supply even before the holiday. There was a little hiccup in supply, the holiday added to it. I am sure will start getting better after the holiday.” Fashola said.

It was also recalled In February that, there were long queues in many filling stations across Lagos based on the strike of members of the National Association of Road Transport Owners.

The queues brought stem of fear on Nigerians, noting that premium motor spirit might become scarce as a result of the NARTO strike.
