Do not be a victim of fuel fraud!

Fuel has always been an integral component of our lives in Nigeria. The unfaltering challenges with power supply and distribution faced over the years by Nigerians has resulted in us being especially dependent on petrol and diesel for running generators in the homes and workplaces.

The cost of running a 150KVA generator for business operations from 8am to 5pm is substantial.

The average fuel usage for running a 9-5 is at 85 to 95 liters' a day with a normal price of N135 (One Hundred and Thirty Five Naira) per litre which equals to about N12, 000 every day. In these climes, with its scarcity being the order of the day, fuel is practically liquid gold… a rare and precious asset.

Imagine having to spend triple the amount of the average fuel consumption per day, 12,000 multiplied by 3 that is N36, 000 just on fuel for one day. Let's not even go into how much diesel would cost. Businesses have had to put a halt on operations due to this current fuel's scarcity; banks are shutting down at 1pm just to save up fuel for the next day's operations. Sad as it may be every other aspect of lives has been tremendously affected by this situation. The last thing you want to worry about is a dishonest staff smuggling your precious "Liquid gold"
