The Kebbi Government, on Tuesday, assured residents of its commitment to resolve the lingering fuel scarcity in the state.
The state deputy governor Alhaji Samaila Yombe, gave this assurance at an interactive session with stakeholders from the state Ministry of Commerce and Industry and the state monitoring committee on distribution.
He said the State Government would not relent in its efforts to ensure that all the necessary measures be put in place to resolve the problem within the shortest possible period.
“Considering the fact that the majority of the people in the state are farmers, who mostly depend on petrol to operate their farming activities, especially during the dry season”.
According to him, the State Government will not disappoint the people of the state.
Earlier, the Chairman of the Petroleum Distribution Committee, Alhaji Aliyu Ahmed, called on the State Government to intervene in the problem with a view to ending the scarcity.
He said the committee was already working with the NNPC depot in Gusau, where 16 trucks had been reportedly allocated to the state.
