Fuel Scarcity In Nigeria
As a result of the outbreak and devastating spread of the much-dreaded coronavirus, not less than 50 cargoes of Nigerian crude oil are stranded on high seas.
Nigeria could be hit by fuel scarcity in the second week of January 2020, if the federal government and the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) do not reach a resolution in the latter's demand.

The NNPC said that contrary to claims by the marketers that they had no access to FX for importation, the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) had provided about $3.6 billion foreign exchange .
The NNPC has cautioned all stakeholders in the downstream petroleum sector to avoid disrupting the seamless supply and distribution of petroleum products in the country.
The operations controller of the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR), Warri zonal office, Antai Asuquo, has said that it has no plan to increase the pump price of petrol, adding that the product is available.
