Motorists now sleep on queues to purchase fuel in Katsina
As the fuel crisis rocking the country makes it into the new year, motorists are coming up with different ways to buy the product.
From carrying generator sets to filling station to buying directly from black marketers, the latest way to ensure you buy the product is passing your night on the queue.
In Katsina state, motorists have defied the cold harmattan weather and are sleeping on queues at filling stations, just to purchase the product.
According to NAN, the long-suffering motorists have decided to sleep in fuel stations in order to purchase the scarce commodity.
NAN reported that the fuel scarcity is biting harder in Katsina, and this has compelled motorists to join long queues for fuel.
Out of over 50 filling stations in the state capital and environs, only 10 filling stations were selling petrol.
Military personnel were seen at the various filling stations controlling motorists and irate youths from disrupting the sales.
However, investigations also revealed that five-litre petrol that was sold for N1, 500 last week, is now being sold at N1, 300.
