Following the continued scarcity of Premium Motor Spirit, PMS (petrol) in the country, the Cross River State Government and independent petroleum marketers in the State have resolved to approach the leadership of NNPC to know the percentage of petrol statutorily allocated to the State.

They also resolved that as part of the modalities to ensure steady flow of fuel, they will jointly put together a monitoring team to stop hoarding by marketers in the state.

They further lamented the fact that the State houses a depot, yet lacks a product like fuel which they alleged is being transported to other States from Calabar, while noting that for some time now, there has been no kerosene and diesel supply to the State.

Both parties met today, Tuesday afternoon in Calabar in a meeting convened by the Commissioner for Petroleum Resources, Itaya Nyong.

According to the Commissioner, the meeting will continue in different phases with different stakeholders to achieve the goal of making fuel available in the State.

Concluding, he maintained that in due course, the number of fuelling stations that have products will be made available to the public through necessary channels.
