There are indications that the on and off fuel scarcity in the country may linger for a long time as Depot and Petroleum Products Marketers Association of Nigeria (DAPPMAN) prepares to embark on another strike.

The association has given 14-day-ultimatum to the Federal Government to settle a N650 billion debt owed its members.

According to the  Executive Secretary of the Association, Mr Olufemi Adewole, the money is the outstanding subsidy claims inherited by the government from the previous administration.

The association warned that it would be forced to shut all its depots and disengage workers if the government failed to settle the debt within the period given.
