Fuel available, costly in Kano

09 January 2013, 08:06

Kano - Fuel supply in Kano has greatly improved since Jan. 1 although the product is being sold higher than the recommended retail price, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) investigations revealed.

NAN found in Kano that many filing stations had fuel supply but sold at prices ranging from N120 to N130 per litre, instead of N97 per litre as recommended by the government. Although motorists willingly bought the product at the inflated prices but they appealed to the relevant authorities to check the situation.

Malam Mu’azu Aliyu, a vehicle owner, said people were at ease now that the fuel was available at the fuel stations. Another motorist, Malam Isma’il Muhammad, said that he was happy with the situation but there was a need for the authorities to control the price.

Mustapha Habib, a trader, said that it was worrisome that the stations still sold at high prices, in spite of the availability of the product.
