Setup council to tackle persistent fuel queues in Nigeria – PETROAN President tells FG


Billy Gillis-Harry, the President of the Petroleum Products Retail Outlets Owners Association, PETROAN, has said the Nigerian government should set up a war council to tackle the continued occurrence of fuel scarcity in the country.

Gillis-Harry disclosed this in an exclusive interview with DAILY POST on the recurrence of fuel queues in Abuja and surrounding states.

His remarks come as Nigerians continue to groan over long fuel queues in major cities in the country since last week amid the assurance of Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited to tackle the challenge in the coming days.

Speaking further on the situation, Gillis-Harry described the fuel queue experienced by Nigerians as a war situation in dire need of an emergency solution.

According to him, the establishment of a war council goes a long way in solving the problem of fuel queues in Nigeria.

“We have talked about the challenges facing the sector, especially in Abuja and Lagos State. It is a situation that comes up and cripples us as usual without clear knowledge of what is going to happen.

“The problem is a supply glitch.

“What we, as PETROAN advise is simple: We need to create a war council to tackle the challenge. Nigeria needs to look into the situation and proffer solutions. Our solution is to always have a war council. For me, anytime there is a fuel queue, it is a war situation. People are fighting and querying, so we must have a council to defend the situation. Their defenses are supposed to be planned for and executed efficiently, he stated.

He added that, “The council will go a long way in solving the challenge of fuel scarcity because everybody will be working with data and knowledge of happenings within the sector.”
