The queues increased a day after the Nigerian government said it had no means of ending the scarcity, and that the crisis may last another two months.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported on Thursday that most filling stations in Abuja had queues which stretched over two kilometres.

Some petrol stations along Kubwa Expressway which had long queues of vehicles were AA Rano, NNPC Mega Station, MRS, Bulsalewa, Conoil and Mobil.

Other fuel stations in the Central Area with long queues were Mobil, Conoil, NNPC outlets, Forte Oil, Total, among others.

A motorist, Emeka Ifedikachi, expressed regret over the non-availability of petrol, saying it was unfortunate that government had yet to fix the problem of the supply of petroleum products.
