Minister of State for Petroleum Resources Dr. Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu, yesterday said fuel queue will be over in Abuja and Lagos this week. He projected that queues in Kano, Katsina, Sokoto and Port Harcourt and other states will dissipate subsequently. The minister also hinted of a price adjustment next month.
He told officials of the Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency (PPPRA) in Abuja that the Ministry will take the right decisions however hard they might be. He added that the government will prevent the return of the subsidy regime.
He said: “Today, we have the fuel queues and it is completely a nightmare for me. The reality is that I am hurt, I am very emotional about my job. And there isn’t still much. We just need to take the right policies as hard as they are and as difficult as they are to ensure we do not return to the policy of subsidy.
