How flood on Lokoja-Abuja highway caused renewed fuel scarcity, queue
The Federal Capital Territory's (FCT) renewed fuel shortage has been bemoaned by drivers and commuters alike.
Long lines have returned to filling stations all over Abuja as a result of the fuel shortage, according to Naijacrawl.
Due to the situation's lack of transportation to take passengers to their various locations, many passengers are currently stranded.
According to information obtained by our correspondent, the Kogi State traffic jam on the Lokoja-Abuja road is to blame for the current fuel shortage in Abuja.
A taxi driver, Musa Sani, who spoke with the Naijacrawl on Thursday morning, blamed the gridlock along the road for the resumed fuel scarcity in the capital territory.
Sani said, “The flood along the Abuja-Lokoja road is responsible for the fuel scarcity in Abuja; the trucks carrying fuel have been held in gridlock for days." "Filling stations did not increase the price of fuel, but you can’t get the product in filling stations in Abuja.”
The Daily Post reported that thousands of commuters and travelers were held up in the gridlock, which was caused by flooding on the Murtala Muhammadu Bridge in Jamata Community in the Koton Karfi area of Lokoja.
The flood had over-shadowed the Lokoja-Abuja highway, causing the gridlock since Monday.
