The statement reads: “Lagos State consumes more than 40 per cent of the fuel and energy needs of the country and therefore appreciates that the impact of the scarcity would be felt more in the state. 

“I share the pain and discomfort of Lagosians.

“I assure them that the Federal Government is deeply touched by the situation and is working round the clock to alleviate the suffering of the people,” Ambode said.
