Fuel scarcity: Commercial drivers threaten to withdraw services
The aggrieved drivers in IMO State issued the threat yesterday, when Vanguard sought their opinion on the fuel situation in the state, they vowed that they will effect their resolution if the relevant government agencies fail to address the current scarcity and rising cost of the petroleum product.
One of the drivers, who simply identified himself as Sunny said that “the ugly situation is getting out of hand and government appears not worried about the effect of the hardship on innocent citizens”.
Sunny further lamented that the cheapest any vehicle operator pays for a litre of petrol is N200 and this is too high for any commercial driver and his passengers.
In his own reaction, an Owerri based businessman, Rotarian Izuchukwu Ugochukwu, said “we have been condemned to pay whatever bill the marketers slam on us.”
