The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria threatened to withdraw its service on Monday as fuel prices continued to rise due to a depot supply shortage.
People have been stressed and suffering as a result of the fuel price increase and the government’s refusal to act.
The issue is caused by a number of factors. Hoarding, incompetence, negligence, dishonesty, greed, and the inability to enforce the law, to name a few examples. The fact that refineries are not operating does not help matters either. Not to mention the lack of adequate roads and other infrastructure, such as secure pipelines for product distribution.
Don’t put off getting a solar generator and portable power to light your business and home until the price of fuel rises.
