The recent ongoing scarcity of premium motor spirit (PMS)  popularly known as fuel
has become an intolerable situation in Nigeria.

It is a proven fact that the past few days has spelt hardship on the Nigerian masses with the tough scarcity of fuel in the South-East and South-South Zone of Nigeria in particular and the nation at large.

And it has led to the skyrocketing of the commodity due to it's scarcity and demand. Some fueling stations sells for as high as #200 per litre and above which has therefore in turn resulted in the hike in prices of other commodities in the market.

In an interview, the newly elected Director of Special Duties, NANS Zone B, Comr. Arigbe Victor condemns the scarcity of fuel and the adverse effects of hardship it has on the Nigerian students.

In his words, "it is appalling that in every festive period in Nigeria, we the mass of Nigerian people are meant to suffer some form of hardships, especially fuel scarcity cum hike even when the nation is rich in oil resources. Very many Nigerian students has been handicapped because of this frustrating situation, some cannot even travel home for Christmas yet because of the increase in transportation due to the scarcity of fuel."

"We hereby call on the Federal Government of Nigeria to address this unfavourable conditions and make life meaningful and better to the Nigerian people."

Indeed, the recent ugly trend is disastrous during this festive period because of the already existing difficulties in the socio-economic sector of Nigeria.

The government must find a way out!
