A recent survey conducted by NOIPolls Limited revealed that North-Central and North-East are worst hit by the effect of fuel scarcity in Nigeria.
Result of the poll, which was signed by the Operating Officer/Director of Research, NOI Polls, Dr. Bell Ihua and made available to Nigerian Pilot in Abuja, showed that although the Federal Government in recent times announced the payment of the outstanding debt owed to oil marketers, the long queues at filling stations still persist.
“Analysis based on geo-political zones revealed that the majority of Nigerians across all geo-political zones have been affected by ‘increase in transport fare’; however, this is mostly true for respondents from the North-Central (59 percent) and North-East (57 percent) zones”.
It was also revealed that 90 percent of Nigerians, who buy petrol, purchase it above the official price of ₦87; moreover, the current average price of petrol per litre across Nigeria is ₦114 and the North-East zone recorded the highest average price per litre at ₦129.
The result of the survey disclosed that the effect of the fuel scarcity on Nigerians include; an increase in transport fare, waste of time on queues, and increase in expenses.
