Fuel Scarcity in Abuja: Residents Cry Out on Alarming Hardship

Abuja has been on a biting hardship since the elections as fuel scarcity has made moving around the Capital city capital intensive. The bite is even deadlier in the last one week as other fuel stations do not sell PMS anymore, leaving sales to only NNPC Fuel stations having people queue for days on end. 

This picture shows the NNPC towers just close by as a black market seller is set to sell that keg of fuel at no less than N4, 000. A cab driver told me a litre of fuel now goes for N1, 000 yesterday and in awe I simply refused to believe him.

Abuja is grinding in economic pain even as we hear that the Federal Government has paid oil marketers to subsidize the product for the benefit of Nigerians. We can't wait for the city to regain its shine and movement begin to flow without ripping our pockets.
