The Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, has given marching orders to the Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, Dr. Maikanti Baru to end fuel scarcity in parts of the country so as not to embarrass the Federal Government ahead of a major event billed to hold in Abuja next week.

This new directive from Kachikwu to Baru was coming on the heels of the Nigeria International Petroleum Summit, NIPS, slated for February 18-22, and described as a Nigerian version of the popular Offshore Technology Conference, OTC, held annually, in Houston, USA.

Kachikwu called for an end to the fuel queues in Abuja in order not to embarrass the Federal Government and foreigners coming for the programme.

He also said the Federal Government had given the ministry the nod to get experts and private investors to re-tool the ailing refineries and get them working up to 90 per cent capacity in order to meet the 2019 deadline of ending fuel importation.

Speaking at a press conference in Abuja to acquaint newsmen about the upcoming petroleum summit, the Minister said he would instruct the NNPC to work day and night to ensure the queues disappear, even as he said the crisis was as a result of both policy and operational challenges.

Kachikwu said: ďOn these fuel queues, we are working round the clock to address it. Lagos is relatively okay. Abuja is struggling because of logistics challenges. But there is improvement from what you used to have late last year.
