Alison-Madueke vows to end fuel scarcity within a week



12 March 2014, Abuja – The minister of petroleum resources, Mrs Diezani Allison-Madueke has again vowed that the current fuel scarcity shall cease to exist within a week  from now.

The minister made the pledge while defending her ministry’s proposed N61.9 billion budget for 2014 before the joint committees of petroleum (upstream and downstream) and that of the gas of the House of Representatives.

She assured that the problem will soon varnish, tentatively attributing it to supply hitch, diversion, hoarding, rumours of likely rise in price of the Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) and problems of supplies.
