Fuel Scarcity Loom in Port-Harcourt following the threat by the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) to withdraw their services.
The fuel scarcity is said to be caused by the illegal collection of levies from the Petroleum Tanker Drivers at various depots.
N-Press Port-Harcourt correspondent who take a tour to ascertain the fuel scarcity said black Marketers were seen selling 10 litres for three thousand naira (3000). Meaning a litre is 300.
Meanwhile, petrol stations within Ada George road and some part of Ikwerre road were closed while some opened as at the time of filling this report.
You will recall that the Eastern zonal chairman of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association (IPMAN), Prince Dike has alleged that illegal collection of levies from Tanker Drivers at various depots has caused untold hardship which may force them to withdraw their services if nothing was done about the situation.
