FG declares nationwide state of emergency

01 April 2016, 10:49

Abuja - The Federal Government has declared a nationwide state of emergency in a desperate move to end ongoing fuel scarcity in the country.

According to a Naij report, the move will mean that private operators will now be responsible for bringing in 60% of the commodity in second quarter import allocations.

Justin Ezeala, Commercial Director of the PPMC, has confirmed the development, saying that the drop in the new import allocation was meant to free the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to import only for itself.

In addition, Ezeala revealed that Petroleum Resources Minister Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu was the person that made the directive.

“From the beginning from tomorrow (today), we have confirmations for cargoes lined up to be received in-country. Petroleum cargoes are to be treated as essential commodities, with all the regulatory agencies – DPR, PPRA, put on the alert,” the minister said.

“We have put in place a process to receive them in terms of logistics and cut short on all the bureaucracies, as everything will be treated with emergency in order to end the fuel crisis.

“To this end, we have also kept trans-shipment vessels in Warri, Calabar depots for easy reach to the northern and southern parts of the country,” he stated.
