FG, oil marketers meet, resolve subsidy debt controversy
The Federal Government on Monday met with the Major Oil Marketers Association of Nigeria with an assurance that the fuel scarcity, being experienced in some parts of the country, would be over within the next few days.
The meeting, presided over by the Minister of Finance, Dr Ngozi Omonjo-Iweala, was held at the headquarters of the Ministry of Finance in Abuja.
It was also resolved at the meeting, which was attended by representatives of MOMAN and some senior officials in the finance ministry, that outstanding subsidy claims would be paid even after a new government takes over power.
At the end of the meeting, which lasted over four hours, Okonjo-Iweala, who briefed journalists in company with the Executive Secretary, MOMAN, Mr. Thomas Olawore, said the issues that led to the scarcity had been resolved.
