Following the recent fuel scarcity in the country occasioned by adulterated Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) and price hike, the Manager of Adehi and Company Nigeria Limited, Mr.Abugu Hillary Ekene has call on the Federal Government and its relevant bodies to scrutinise all refined products (oil and gas) imported into Nigeria.

Ekene who expressed his concern in an interview with Africa SPRINT in Abuja, averred that the lingering fuel scarcity in the country is as a result of the adulterated content that was floated in the country in recent time.

According to him “this scarcity started when bad fuel was brought into Nigeria, and at discovering that the product was not good for Nigerian automobiles consumption they decided to quickly take it back, and by doing that I believe the leftover was not sufficient to take us for a long time before new import; that’s why we’re suffering the outcome now”

Speaking further, the Manager maintained that the product that was brought into the country from what he heard was not good enough for Nigerian automobiles consumption.

“Our weather is different from the one in Western world and Asia,so when certain chemicals are found in the product(oil) it spoil our engine faster, that’s why anytime such products found their way into Nigeria,they quickly return it” he posited.

Ask how he feels as the scarcity bights harder, the Manager said sometimes he feels like crying seeing Nigerians suffering on things that are avoidable if people in authority were doing the right thing.

“Sometimes you see people coming to me begging and some almost in tears to sell them fuel, and when I tell them there’s no product they feel I’m not saying the truth, meanwhile that’s the true situation” What can we do, he question.

He therefore advice Nigerians to continue to pray for leaders in authority while hoping for better days.
