Bad Fuel: Compensate Owners Of Damaged Vehicles– NUJ Urges FG

The leadership of the Nige­rian Union of Journalists (NUJ) has urged the Federal Government to pay compen­sation to Nigerians whose vehicles have been damaged as a result of the adulterated fuel recently imported into the country.

As noted by Mr. Chris Isiguzo, President of the Union, in a statement on Fri­day, “Rather, what ought to obtain now is for a demand that probe Panel as ordered by President Muhammadu Buhari is conclusive, while adequate compensation be paid all verifiable claims of those whose vehicles whose vehicles may have been af­fected by the high methanol PMS.”

Isiguzo, in the statement, added that it had become vi­tal to note that after over four years of uninterrupted avail­ability of premium motor spirit, Nigerians over the past few days have been grappling with buying the products at filling stations across some parts of the country.

He explained, “The pres­ent challenge the Union understands is as a result of the importation of PMS with higher than normal methanol level. Since the unfortunate development, it is regrettable to observe that there have been some forth and back between the Nigeria National Petroleum Corpora­tion, NNPC, and some of its designated importers over the ‘bad fuel’”.

In the same vein, he said it is expected that as responsible corporate organisations, “The importers of the contaminat­ed fuel will take full responsi­bility and seek restitution for this national mishap.
