Fuel Scarcity Deepens, As Nigerians Keep Vigil At Fuel Station (Photos)

Nigerians are pretty confused right now, they do not know who to blame for the long queues, is it President Muhammadu Buhari or the senate? 

Two weeks ago the federal government approved payment of 413 billion naira ($2 billion) in subsidies, some dating from 2014, but funds have yet to be transferred because they are yet to approved by the senate. 

According to Reuters, importers have not been paid their subsidy since Buhari succeeded Goodluck Jonathan and the delay has worsened the financial crunch for importers. At a fuel station on LASU-Ojo road Nigerians are forced to keep vigil and motorists barely have a chance of buying fuel. Our correspondent was restrained from taking photographs but here are some pictures.
