Abuja — Oil marketers, Tuesday, blamed the Federal Government for the persistent fuel scarcity, even as the fuel crisis continued unabated across the Federal Capital Territory and most parts of the country.
One of the marketers who spoke to Vanguard in Abuja, said Nigerians should hold the Federal Government responsible for the crisis, stating that the government has, against all advice and agreements, refused to pay the marketers the debts owed them in respect of subsidy on Premium Motor Spirit, PMS.
The marketer who chose to remain anonymous, said the Federal Government appears not to be serious about bringing the scarcity to an end, as the government has failed to honour most of the agreements reached between it and the marketers.
The marketer said, “Nigerians should blame the Federal Government for the fuel scarcity currently witnessed across the country. Marketers have shown commitment towards ending the scarcity, but the Federal Government has not been serious about abiding with certain agreements reached during some of our meetings.
“The fact that most oil marketers have stopped fuel importation into the country at the moment was because they do not have money to finance the import and this is because the Federal Government has refused to pay us the money they owe us.
