The pictures published herein were taken yesterday at Goldie Street at a spot a little withdrawn from NNPC Filling Station.
Here, one finds Keke Napep drivers struggling to buy fuel from black marketers's of the petroleum product.
It has been gathered that the reason for the scarcity of fuel in the state is because the government of Cross River State slammed the sum of N12, 800/tanker as way-bill tax.
This resulted in the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) and Petroleum Tanker Drivers Association of Nigeria to proceed on an industrial action.
Meanwhile, yesterday the state governor was reportedly seen to be escorted to the Margaret Ekpo International Airport, Calabar.
It's surprising how we don't have water in Calabar the state capital, power supply in Obudu the governor's hometown and now, no fuel especially when we wish to celebrate Cross River @ 50. Hmm!
