Marketers threaten to name fuel saboteurs

The Association of Mega Filling Station Owners of Nigeria (AMFSON) has threatened to give the names of government officials sabotaging fuel supply to the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu.

They are, however, afraid that if they do so, heads will roll in the industry.

Addressing a press conference yesterday over the plight of members of the Association to access fuel after several months of depositing millions of naira, its National Secretary, Kenneth Nwachukwu said his members had in the past resisted the urge to name the saboteurs even when the Minister insisted they do.

He alleged that several trucks of fuel had been diverted into black markets by the saboteurs at the detriment of mega stations owners and Nigerians in general.

He recalled that it was because of fuel scarcity that the immediate past government established mega affiliate stations to cushion its negative effects on the masses.

“Sometimes you see 10 trucks of fuel packed at Mega 1, while none of our members has fuel. And by night the Mega 1 will sell off these 10 trucks to the black market.

“You cannot solve fuel scarcity in this way unless you allow the supply to go round. But you pack 10 trucks in one place, whom are you deceiving, and by night you send the trucks to the black markets.”
