The Ministry of Petroleum Resources and oil marketers have resolved to end the current queues at petrol stations in most parts of the country by June 13.
At the end of a meeting with the oil marketers in Abuja, the Permanent Secretary in the ministry, Mr Taiye Haruna, said that the Pipelines And Product Marketing Company has been mandated to work with the oil marketers to ensure improved supply to retail outlets nationwide.
However, Mr Haruna identified the gridlock on the Oshodi-Apapa as one of the constraints to the improved supply of the product.
He explained that while there is adequate stock for more than 20 days, over 2,000 trucks are on the road while some have been on the road for the past ten days, all waiting to load the product.
Mr Haruna also explained that the ministry would work with the Lagos State Government, the petroleum tanker drivers and the National Association of Road Transport Operators to clear the lock-jam.
