Business activities in Kaduna metropolis and environs were on Monday grounded as most business owners witnessed low patronage due to fuel scarcity that has hit the state.
LEADERSHIP correspondent who monitored the situation in Kaduna metropolis, reports that fuel is now sold for N1,000 per litre at some few stations that have the product.
Our correspondent observed that a litre of fuel is being sold at N1,500 at the black market and this has forced many car owners to park their cars at home and resorted in using public transport.
Most filling stations were closed as some few stations selling the products witnessed long queues.
A Kaduna resident, Festus Akpan, who entered public transport to go to work said, ”I parked my car at home because for two days now, I don’t get fuel. The fuel is terrible and government should look into it as quick as possible because people are suffering.”
A commercial bus driver who called himself, Sami spoke on the rise on transport fare associated with the scarcity, ”From Sabon Tasha to Central Market is now N400 per passenger against N250. We are buying a litre of fuel at black market N1,500,” he lamented.
