Some photos have emerged of Nigerians queuing to buy fuel with their generators in Ikorodu, Lagos state following the current fuel scarcity in the country.
The pictures were shared by a Facebook user named Yousouph Bin Ahmed who asked other Nigerians how they were coping with the scarcity.
He said: "How fair is fuel scarcity in your area? This is how it is right now at ikorodu garage. Why won't we talk, nothing has really changed. I pity those sufferers who are at the same smiling."
During fuel scarcity many filling stations refuse to sell petrol in jerry cans because of black market sellers.

This usually compels Nigerians to carry their generators to the filling stations to buy fuel so they can power their generators due to poor power supply.

Meanwhile, the National Association of Nigerian Students, (NANS) zone B, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to step-down as minister of petroleum resources.
The group in a statement by its zonal coordinator, Comrade Pedro Obi, called on the president to appoint Ibe Kachikwu as the substantive minister of petroleum resources following the lingering fuel scarcity in the country, Vanguard reports.
NANS blamed the uncertainty in the petroleum industry on the fact that Buhari was heading the sector.
The group described the sealing of filling stations by the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) as sheer hypocrisy, adding if the agency was serious about controlling the price of the product, it should go to the petroleum depots where these private filling station owners lift product.
