Lai Mohammed, Minister for Information and Culture, says the Federal Government has given Ibe Kachikwu, Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, the “marching orders” to ensure that fuel queues at filling stations are eliminated before the week runs out.

He also said the government has no plans to increase the pump price of petrol.

Mohammed said this while addressing State House correspondents after Wednesday’s Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting.

“The council gave him (Kachikwu) a matching order that this fuel scarcity should not last beyond this weekend and they are going to work very hard to ensure that it is curtailed,” Mohammed said, adding that “the government has no intention at all to increase the pump price of PMS.”

He said that Kachikwu had briefed the council on the current fuel scarcity and assured the public that the country has “enough products till next one month or even till the end of January”.
