Nigerians across major cities faced long queues and hours-long waits to buy fuel on Tuesday, April 30th. The fuel shortage has led to increased transportation costs, causing more hardship for Nigerians already struggling in an economic crisis.

Authorities blamed the shortage on supply disruptions due to logistical challenges, with queues stretching up to 3 kilometers at some gas stations.

Nigeria is a major crude oil producer, but frequent strikes and supply disruptions result in regular fuel shortages.

It is worth recalling, the country relies heavily on imported fuel due to underperforming refineries, and the recent opening of a new refinery in Lagos has not yet solved the problem.

Fuel prices have jumped by over 15% in some areas, and the crisis is causing difficulties for businesses that rely on generators due to Nigeria’s erratic power supply.

Unfortunately the fuel scarcity which is expected to last for the next two weeks, has resulted in major traffic jams, with Nigerians expressing frustration at the inability to work or afford their next meal due to the lack of fuel.
