Kerosene scarcity is a national embarrassment – Peterside

The Chairman, House Committee on Petroleum Downstream, Hon. Dakuku Peterside, has described the lingering kerosene scarcity across the country as a national embarrassment.

Dakuku made the statement in Calabar, Cross River State, during his committee’s oversight visit to Pipelines and Products Marketing Company, PPMC, and other private oil facilities in the city.

Peterside, who spoke with officials of PPMC, marketers, retailers and consumers of kerosene, said the prevailing scarcity of the product is not only an embarrassment, but also a denial of basic rights of the ordinary Nigerians who bear the brunt of national challenges such as this.
