LAGOS – The National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) on Tuesday assured Lagosian that there would be free traffic flow as more depots are now loading petroleum products in the city.
Mr Tokunbo Korodo, the South-West Chairman of NUPENG told NAN in Lagos that more petroleum tankers came down from northern part because loading had increased in depots.
“We appeal to Lagosians to exercise patience because the tankers will be going back to their different locations by this evening.
“With the improve loading in the depots, there is hope that the scarcity of petroleum will gradually fade out by weekend,” he said.
A correspondent of NAN who monitored the traffic situation in the city reports that queue of petroleum tankers had stretched from Stadium Road to Marine road, a distance of about five kilometres.
Also, petroleum tankers had taken over the road leading to Apapa from Mile 2 down to Coconut to Tin-Can Island.
