Fuel Scarcity

Fuel scarcity persists in the oil-rich Nigeria since January 2016. Pipeline vandalism is one of the factors which case it.

In April 2016 the Buhari administration promised to treat pipeline vandals in the same way as terrorists. In their return, the militant groups in the Niger Delta said they would not be intimidated by the threats of the Buhari administration and would continue their actions in the interests of their people.

The ongoing active reconstruction and recommissioning of both refineries and pipelines may help to solve the crisis. Follow all the major updates on NAIJ.com.
