Fuel scarcity: Buhari escapes summons, Senate probes shortage

From Fred Itua, Abuja
ALL Progressives Congress (APC) Senators yesterday
shut down moves by the opposition Peoples
Democratic Party (PDP) to summon President
Muhammadu Buhari, who is also the Minister of
Petroleum Resources, to appear before the Senate
over the biting fuel scarcity.
In a motion sponsored by Senator Barau Jibrin (APC,
Kano North) and co-sponsored by 23 others, the
lawmakers expressed worries over the endless fuel
scarcity and the hardship it has inflicted on
Nigerians.
“We are worried that the scarcity is creating an
untold hardship to our citizens who have to pay
higher prices for these products especially petrol. We
are convinced that the current situation is not in tune
with the desire of the progressively-inclined
government to bring”, he said.
Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe (PDP, Abia South), urged
the Senate to summon the President to tell law-
makers why the government was yet to resolve the
lingering fuel crisis, despite claims that the refineries
were working.
Abaribe’s amendment to the motion was defeated
when the Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, put it
up for a voice vote. APC Senators who were obviously
more in number, drowned the voices of their PDP
counterparts.
Meanwhile, the Senate has mandated its Committee
on Petroleum Downstream to urgently examine all is-
sues associated with the current scarcity of
petroleum products and determine how the
legislature could collaborate with the executive to
bring a lasting solution that will prevent any future
problem of fuel scarcity. The committee is expected
to report back to the Senate as soon as possible.
