Queues return to filling stations in Lagos Mainland – See why here

Weeks after residents across Lagos Mainland communities witnessed an intense struggle for petrol and spent several nights in petrol stations, queues have returned to filling stations in some areas in the axis.

Presently, there is a struggle to get fuel in areas such as Ogba, Fagba, Iju, Ikorodu, Agege, among other communities in Lagos Mainland.

InsideMainland gathered that the reason behind the fuel queues was as a result of fuel shortage which affected the regular supplies to the filling stations.

According to a staff of a popular petrol station in Ogba, Lagos Mainland, the station received short suppose from its marketers.

The staff who craved anonymity said: “We didn’t get the usual supply we receive weekly from the marketers,” he said.

“The queue will continue for a while until we get stable supply for things to return to normal. This is same for other stations as well because marketers are not supplying the quantity needed.

“Some filling stations are even yet to receive fuel from their suppliers. This means only leading stations who move their own petrol will have enough supplies compared to others.”

The present queue for fuel is coming weeks after fuel scarcity rocked the entire Lagos Mainland and other parts of the State in December 2017.
