The Kano Public Complaint and Anti Corruption Commission’s urgent intervention in the lingering fuel scarcity in the state might have saved the situation after hours of talks between the Commission Chairman, Barrister Muhmud Balarabe, and the IPMAN Chairman Bashir Danmallam.
Danmallam was invited to the commission, yesterday where he spent hours answering questions on why there is an artificial scarcity of petroleum products in the state.
Balarabe, said, “We discussed extensively with the Chairman lasting for hours and I ordered him to provide the manifest of fuel supplied to Kano to us”.
“When he brought the manifest, we understand that there were 81 trucks on ground already supplied to the state, and I asked them to dispense them as quickly as possible”.
Kano was plunged into fuel scarcity, with several marketers’ filling stations firmly padlocked, leaving residents to wallow in lack.
However, the quick intervention of the commission into the matter has already started yielding fruition with long queues at some few filling stations disappearing.
Balarabe explained to newsmen that there was no way they would allow artificial scarcity of the products in the state as they are already going round all the filling stations to ensure no one hides the products.
The Chairman of the IPMAN, Bashir Danmallam, assured that he will comply with the directives of the commission to ensure that fuel is available at all the filling stations and nobody hoards the product.
