The ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, has said that it is aware of the suffering and hardship that Nigerians are passing through, occasioned by the biting fuel scarcity across the country.
The party pledged that the situation is being addressed, urging Nigerians to be patients as ‘nothing good comes cheap. Sacrifices are required’
Motorists faced untold hardship in their quest to purchase Premium Motor Spirit, PMS, also known as petrol.
Most of the petrol stations in the country, Tuesday, were shut due to unavailability of the petrol, while the few filling stations selling the product were besieged by a large crowd of motorists.
Even at the front of the NNPC headquarters in Abuja, the black marketers continue to ply their trade unhindered, providing an alternative for motorists who could not afford to spend several hours queuing for fuel.
In apparent reaction to the hardship experienced by Nigerians, the APC took to its Twitter handle to assure Nigerians that the Muhammed Buhari-led government will deliver.
“The APC is aware of the hardship Nigerians are passing through, resulting from the ongoing fuel scarcity. Situation is being addressed!”
“Let’s be a little more patient with the new cabinet of President Buhari. Most importantly, be assured that this govt will surely deliver!”
“Nothing good comes cheap. Sacrifices are required. By the time we pass through the foundation stage, Nigerians will see a new Nigeria!”
