The Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) has said that the traffic gridlock in the Apapa axis of Lagos will continue until the scarcity of petrol is resolved as petrol tankers across the country were loading at Apapa depots, Vanguard reports.
Mr Tokunbo Korodo, the South-West Chairman of the union said that NNPC depots had not been loading because of the activities of vandals. He added that tanker drivers were now coming to private depots in Lagos to carry fuel.
Korodo said that the traffic gridlock would have been checked if NNPC was using the over 50 private depots in Lagos to distribute the product. “At present NNPC is using only six private depots in Lagos to distribute the product and they are all in Apapa axis” he said.
