Fuel shortage in Accra again

Citi Business News can confirm that there is an acute shortage of petrol and diesel in some parts of Accra.
A visit to some pump stations in Adabraka and the central business district of Accra revealed some stations do not have either petrol or diesel.
According to the manageress of So Energy station in Adabraka Simeone Occansey the station has ran out of petrol for the last two weeks.
“Currently we have only diesel at the station, we’ve been out of super for awhile …we’ve been trying but we get minimal quantity and we bring it to the station and by three days maximum it is done (Finished)”, she stressed.
But the manager of Total Petroleum pump station in Adabraka John Evlo said they have rather ran out of diesel. “We have petrol but we don’t have diesel, (the situation has been like this for) three weeks” he added.
According to him the current economic challenges in the country is partly to blame for the failure of his pump station to have enough stock of both Petrol and Diesel.
The manager of Engen Ghana limited at the central business district of Accra, Stanley Nutsugah speaking to Citi Business News said he expected the situation to normalize by close of day.
“At my station I have a lot of diesel but no super , the super ran out this morning , we are waiting for our supplies , we were told it will come this morning so we are waiting”, he said.
He lamented that the situation was having a toll on his business. Attempts to get clarification from the National Petroleum Authority (NPA) as to what caused the shortage have proven futile.
