We’re not responsible for fuel scarcity in Bauchi, says IPMAN

The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) Chairman in Bauchi State Rabiu Arabab insists the body is not responsible for the fuel scarcity in the state.

Arabab, who spoke to journalists yesterday in Bauchi, said the scarcity was caused by the Easter and Sallah breaks as some of the workers and drivers travelled out of the state to celebrate the festivities with their families.

According to him, the situation will be normal in a few days as many drivers had begun trips to bring the product after the festive season.
