Worries have arisen as numerous petrol stations in Kaduna State have increased the price of fuel to ₦1,000 per litre as of Thursday morning.


Recent reports indicate that fuel scarcity has returned to the state, significantly affecting its residents.


Motorists endure greater hardships as they are forced to buy fuel at inflated prices from black market sellers.

Many commuters bound for work and various business destinations experienced being stranded due to the widespread fuel scarcity in the state. Only a few commercial operators provided transportation services.

It was observed that most fuel stations were either not dispensing fuel at all or those that did have significantly increased their pump prices to a range of ₦750 to ₦810 per litre. Despite the price hike, long queues were witnessed at these stations.

A local resident named Mohammed Amin shared the update with Daily Trust, revealing that he bought two liters of fuel for ₦2,200, equivalent to half a gallon.

He considered leaving his vehicle behind and opting for public transportation if the problem continued.

It was also found that commercial operators were taking advantage of the scarcity by increasing their fares.

A commuter named Amina Isa, who typically paid N100 from the NNPC filling station in Millennium City to a roundabout where she caught another tricycle to her destination, informed reporters, “After waiting three hours without finding a ride, I had no choice but to take the next available keke, who charged me ₦300 to the same destination.”

Moses Joseph, another traveler, noted that he was billed ₦400 instead of the usual ₦200 for his trip from Kakuri to Ahmadu Bello Way.

Corroborating, Mrs Anna Yohanna, who took a bus from Goni Gora to Kaduna Central Market, reported paying ₦500 instead of ₦250.

Meanwhile, it was learnt that many fuel stations were shut down in the Oke-Ogun part of Oyo State on Thursday.

A resident bought petrol at ₦800 per litre at a fuel station in Igbeti, Olorunsogo Local Government Area.

Motorists who had patronized the same station earlier in the morning disclosed that the product was sold at ₦1000 and ₦900.

Recall that thousands of commuters in the Federal Capital Territory, Nasarawa, Niger, Gombe, Sokoto, and Anambra states were left stranded at bus stops, grappling with the scarcity of petrol needed by transporters to run their vehicles.

The scarcity has led to a worrying increase in transportation costs throughout the affected states.
