Governor of Ekiti state, Ayo Fayose has directed that 80 percent of the petrol in the Government Fuel Dump be released to two petrol stations in Ado Ekiti, and to be sold to the public at the control price of N145 per litre in order to reduce the effects of the current fuel scarcity in the state.
The governor, who made this known through his verified Twitter Handle said “The maximum a single individual can buy will be 25 litres.”
His tweet reads;
“I cannot be keeping fuel in the govt house dump while our people keep suffering. I have asked them to pump out 80% of the petrol in the Govt House Fuel Dump to be sold at the control price of N145. I am going to town to locate the two petrol stations where the petrol will be sold.”
The governor lamented the hardship being faced by Nigerians as a result of the petrol scarcity.
“The APC led federal government has turned the joy of Nigerians to groaning. People can not travel to meet their families because of the wickedness of this APC government. This hardship is too much for Nigerians to bear at this time and it is obvious that President Muhammadu Buhari does not have solution to the fuel scarcity.”
