Fuel Crisis: Ambode Urges Lagosians To Remain Calm

Akinwunmi Ambode, the Lagos State governor, on Wednesday appealed to Lagosians to bear with the government over the lingering shortage of fuel and power across the state.

Ambode, who spoke through a statement issued by Mr. Steve Ayorinde, the state’s Commissioner for Information and Strategy, urged residents to remain calm, orderly and law-abiding, stressing that government is doing everything possible within its power to find an immediate solution to the crisis.

The governor said he shared the pain and discomfort of Lagosians and assured them that President Muhammadu Buhari is deeply touched by the situation and was working round the clock to alleviate the suffering of the people

He stated that Lagos State consumes more than 40 per cent of the fuel and energy needs of the country and therefore appreciated that the impact of the scarcity would be felt more in the state.
