Petrol supply: 7 major Katsina State towns hit by recent Customs order
Customs Tighten Noose, Bar Supply of Petrol to Borders
The Nigeria Customs Services (NCS) has ramped up efforts to curtail smuggling with a directive to the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency (PPPRA) and all relevant agencies to suspend fuel supply to petrol stations within 20 kilometres of Nigeria’s borders with neighbouring West African countries.
The directive is in furtherance of the ongoing bid by the federal government to drastically curb smuggling that led to the closure of the country’s land borders with its neighbouring West African countries.
Katsina Post runs a check on some major cities and urban settlements in Katsina State that are worst hit by this government order.
