Lagos (Vanguard Daily, September 13, 2000) -
Petroleum products scarcity which started in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory, spread
to Lagos yesterday as long queues emerged again
at most filling stations in the city.
. . .
The problem, it was learnt, was compounded by
power failure at the Atlas Cove Jetty, offshore
Lagos since last Friday. An estimated 40,000
metric tonnes of diesel and an unspecified
quantity of petrol could not be pumped as a
result of the failure.
. . .
Power failure apart, there has been products
shortage owing to what sources described as
inadequate importation to meet local consumption
which the refineries could not meet owing to their
. . .
Total rehabilitation of the refineries is expected
to be the lasting solution to the problem.
