Fuel scarcity has worsened in Kaduna State as workers, businessmen, and travelers were left stranded at various bus stops.

According to reports, various filling stations were locked, while several vehicles queued, waiting for the arrival of fuel.

A litre of fuel, which sold for N1,000 Naira yesterday (Sunday) goes for N1,500 in the black market today, Daily Post reports.

Although the Kaduna State government has banned the selling of fuel in jerricans, car owners have been patronising the black market since the scarcity hit the state.

A resident of the state, Juliet Adama said, “I have stayed at Kakuri Bus stop trying to take a bus to Kawo since 6:00 am up till 9:00 am, there is no vehicle.

“Some bus drivers drove past us, saying they were looking for fuel. Others were going to queue for fuel at filling stations.”

Also, Yohanna Madaki, who said he wanted to travel for a burial at Kafachan, said he could not afford the cost of transportation.

“Some passengers have returned to their various homes. After staying for several hours, a passenger taxi came and asked us to pay N5,000. I cannot afford it. I am going back to my house,” he said.

Although the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has promised to supply enough fuel to ease transportation, the situation is not getting any better.
