Written by Adewale Adeyemi on February 6, 2023
The Network of Civil Societies for Economic Sustainability (NCSES) has warned the Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Limited of massive nationwide protests because of the lingering petrol scarcity.
The organisation, in a letter, addressed to the Group Chief Executive Officer, NNPCL, Mele Kyari, noted that mass action was inevitable in the coming days if nothing was done to end the queues in filling stations.
The civil society made its position known in a letter signed by its Convener, Comrade Mohammed Shuaibu, and Co-covener, Comrade Nwogwugwu Bright.
In the letter, the Nation newspaper reported that the group urged the NNPCL to clarify the position of things as regards petrol scarcity in the country and proffer urgent positive action towards addressing the problem.
