Millions suffer in Nigerian under hard fuel scarcity
« on: May 23, 2015, 02:19:40 PM »

Nigeria, Africa?s leading oil producer, on Thursday warned that jobs could be at risk, as a weeks-long fuel crisis showed no signs of easing.

Long queues have been seen for days outside filling stations, flights have been grounded and generators that kick in when the country?s patchy public electricity supply goes off have run silent, leaving many without power.

?Many companies have shut down because they cannot get diesel to fuel their plants,? Musa Yusuf, of the Lagos Chamber of Commerce and Industry, told AFP.

?Unless the situation is redressed, companies may be forced to lay off (staff).?
Addressing the crisis looks likely to be the first major task for incoming president Muhammadu Buhari, who takes office next Friday.
