The NNPC boss, Maikanti Baru, has assured Nigerians that the lingering fuel scarcity that had crippled the country will come to an end this weekend. He made this statement while speaking to reporters after clossing an illegal petrol depot in the nation’s capital yesterday.

“I promise by weekend, most of the abrasions we’ve been noticing will disappear. You could see that we are winning the war. The fuel queues have significantly subsided in Abuja; In Lagos, they’ve almost become none existent and, of course, we are pushing it to the other cities as well as to the hinterlands” he says.
