10 June 2015, 13:41

Hadejia - Some motorists in Hadejia, Jigawa, have expressed joy on the improvement in fuel supply in the area.

Some of the available petrol stations had reportedly increased the pump price by about 30 per cent, above the approved N87.

A litre of petrol was sold between N115 and N120, as against its old price of N135 during the scarcity in the past weeks.

The product was sold at N170 per litre at the black market outlets, as against its previous price of N180.

A cross section of the motorists, who spoke to NAN described the situation as a ‘welcome development’.

Malam Kamilu Baffa, a commercial bus operator, said that he was happy on the improved fuel supply.

Baffa said, "I am now spending less on fuel as against the past weeks when there was an acute scarcity of the product.

"Petrol stations are selling above the government approved pump price but it is better now compared to the recent past," he said.

Another motorist, Habibu Tanimu, lauded the Federal Government and oil marketers' association for their commitment to end fuel scarcity in the country.

Taminu expressed the hope that prices would further go down when the supply improves.
