The ongoing fuel scarcity across Nigeria, particularly in Kogi State, is of greater concern than State elections, according to some residents speaking with a SaharaReporters citizen reporter.
For many residents the crippling fuel shortage is making them more anxious than elections tomorrow.
One resident in Okene stated that long lines of people can be seen waiting for petrol at stations in the area. Many people are complaining of fuel scarcity and that some people are hoarding petrol, placing many in hardship.
It was also learned that filling stations in Okene town are selling petrol for 150 naira per liter, irrespective of national prices or the number of people queued.
