The Federal Executive Council (FEC) at its meeting on Wednesday stated that the weeks-long scarcity of petroleum products, especially premium motor spirit (PMS), would end in May as government has been working round the clock to bring the situation under control.

Shortly after the meeting chaired by President Muhammadu Buhari at the State House, Abuja, the FEC detailed some of the short-term and long-term plans to revamp the refineries before the end of 2017 and also put an end to importation of petrol by 2019.

Part of the short term initiatives to end PMS scarcity would include imports and supplied from Port Harcourt and Kaduna refineries, to ease the difficulties of Nigerians before the end of May.
