members had in recent past resisted the urge to mention the saboteurs even
when the Minister insisted they mention names.

He pointed out that it was for incident of fuel scarcity that the immediate
past government established mega affiliate stations in order to cushion its
negative effect on Nigerians, and urged the Minister who is also the Group
Managing Director to address plight of AMFSON members to help in ending the
fuel crisis.

He said, “The minister said we should mention names, but you know
Nigerians, when you come out in public to mention names of the saboteurs,
they can go after you, so it is something that if it is possible to do one
on one with the Minister, we can tell him, there is nothing to be feared
because we have evidence of how fuel is being diverted into the black
markets, we have evidence of everything we are saying about this fuel
