The Department of State Services (DSS) on Thursday, handed the Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Limited and oil marketers in the country a 48-hour ultimatum to make Premium Motor Spirit known as petrol available for Nigerians

DSS Spokesman, Peter Afunanya, issued this directive while briefing journalists at the headquarters of the secret police in Abuja after over three hours closed-door meeting with stakeholders in the petroleum sector.

He said failure to comply, the DSS will activate its operations across the country.

According to Afunanya, the challenge of fuel scarcity has assumed a dimension that is detrimental to the security of the country.

He said during the meeting, the NNPC agreed that there is enough product that will serve Nigerians during and after the Yuletide season.

For weeks, vehicle owners especially in Lagos and Abuja have had a tough time getting petrol from filling stations. While many outlets are closed, the few ones that are open sell the indispensable commodity for as high as N250 per litre from the uniform price of N169/litre.

The shortage of supply has led to long, grueling snake-like queues at the few open filling stations as motorists and business owners jostle to buy fuel while others resort to black market. The situation has also worsen traffic on major roads as vehicle owners block at least one lane to join queues to filling stations.

Like I have always said, Nigerians should adopt a democratic system that is suitable for Nigerian characteristics. Western democratic characteristics style is a failure in a black man characteristics and especially in Nigeria characteristics.Our people are dubious ,greedy ,heartless ,wicked ,lack of human values , and only things that matters is money .Therefore, in a society where people are not normal ,the democratic system should be redefined to suit the local character .A democracy like military in action is needed to instill and enforce decorum and dignity . A time will come Nigeria will have to write the constitution. Even in the animal kingdom or in the zoo , animals are controlled or tamed as according to their nature .U can’t apply the same approach to lion and a monkey , despite the fact they are both caged in the zoo or in their natural habitat.
