“My advice to the government is they should just try to look for a solution,” a Nigerian citizen says.
Nigeria’s petrol crisis has taken a turn for the worse as some motorists now spend almost twenty-four hours at petrol stations just to fill up their tanks. The country has been battling crippling petrol shortages for over a month as a result of scarcity of refined petrol. The worst affected is Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial capital.
Despite the global drop in the price of oil, Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has refused to allow the country’s currency to devalue, leading to a shortage of foreign exchange. Lagos businessmen and consumers are feeling the impact as the country deals with a severe fuel shortage.
