The Guardian was told yesterday that Farouk, who was well briefed by his team, took a decision to ensure distribution is unhindered. The Guardian had, on Monday, written to NNPC over the scarcity without any reply. The Guardian learnt that this was part of the reasons advanced by government officials for delaying the removal of subsidy. At any rate, if Ghana, Benin Republic, Chad, Cameroun and Niger Republic are not running fuel subsidies, why should Nigeria do it? Can they sell at the cost price and yet the NNPC is silent on the additional levies marketers are paying.
