The
Federal Government has approved the release of fuel from the nation’s strategic
reserves to mitigate the scarcity of the product nationwide. The
Minister of Petroleum Resources, Mrs. Diezani Alison-Madueke, said this in a
chat with the News Agency of Nigeria on Wednesday in Okirika, Rivers.

Alison-Madueke
spoke with NAN on the sideline of the inauguration of the Nigerian National
Petroleum Corporation Jetty in Okirika Local Government area of Rivers.

“We
have put all our weight and our strategic reserves out to ensure that we keep
it (scarcity) as minimal as possible.
“I
do believe that the issue of fuel scarcity and subsidy payment is also being
handled aggressively by the Ministry of Finance.
“On
our side, we will ensure that our strategic reserves are put to very good use
and that we keep it (fuel scarcity) as low as possible,” she told NAN.
Alison-Madueke
said the turnaround maintenance and rehabilitation of the nation’s refineries
were presently ongoing, adding that the completion of the exercise would
guarantee accessibility of products by consumers.
