Fuel scarcity ends and Lagos schools resume their work
Even though people can still feel the impacts of the fuel scarcity, it has become less severe. For a while parents have been looking for the date when schools get back on, as they were worried over their kids missing so much education wise.
Dr. Idiat Adebule, the deputy government has urged the parents of the kids in Lagos state to send them back to schools and inspire to study hard and catch up what was missed due to the fuel scarcity. Of course the academic calendar was distorted and kids need to do their best to catch up.
How Federal Government resolved the fuel scarcity problem
Just now FG has started releasing the petrol to IPMAN (Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria. It seems to bet the best solution for the problem, as the Association had over 7000 pending loading tickets on hand. IPMAN has over 80 percent of all the fuel outlets in Nigeria under its control, so if they can get stocked up with petroleum, people would be able to buy and move around freely.
As you see, this is some good news for Lagos state and for the kids, who can finally go on with their education and lay a firm foundation for their future success.
