Long queues have appeared in Abuja for the purchase of Premium Motor Spirit, also known as petrol, few days after normalcy returned to the area.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that long queues returned to retail outlets in Wuse, Gwarimpa, Wuye and Kubwa Expressway on Friday, while other areas were not selling the product.
Meanwhile, the National Public Relations Officer, Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria, Alhaji Suleiman Yakubu, has advised the public to stop panic buying, saying there was enough stock and the price had not changed.
Yakubu urged the people to ignore the rumours going on and also advised all marketers under IPMAN to continue selling at the official price.
A taxi driver, Effiong John, told NAN that he had been at the petrol station since 11am and urged the government to bring sanity to the oil sector.
