The Managing Director/CEO of Capital oil, Ifeanyi Ubah has announced the resumption of loading of PMS at his jetty to ease the scourge of the endemic fuel scarcity that Nigeria had been plunged into. The move has therefore, broken the ranks of oil marketers and depot operators, who have refused to import any more products until their outstanding subsidy claims of over N200billion is paid by the Federal Government.
Read his full statement below:
Good day Ladies and Gentlemen of the press!
On Saturday 16th May 2015, we received an SMS ordering the suspension of loading activities in all depots from Monday 18th May 2015. We later realized that this directive was as a result of unpaid funds owed to transporters by oil marketers who in turn are owed by the Federal Government.
This development has resulted in immense hardship to our fellow country men and women. We believe that a better solution can be pursued towards solving this problem in a way that does not adversely affect our dear citizens.
Capital Oil and Gas has watched with so much pain, the suffering and hardship our citizens have been subjected to as a result of scarcity of petrol, diesel, aviation fuel and

Tottering around the park in skyscraper heels surrounded by an entourage of minions and hangers-on, it was business as usual when Mariah Carey descended on Disneyland last week. A burly bodyguard clutched her Louis Vuitton handbag. One woman’s job was solely to hold an umbrella over the star’s head to shield her from the sun.
And why not, you might think?
After all, Carey, 45, has made her name as the ultimate diva, one of the most successful female singers of all time, the voice behind mega-hits like Hero and All I Want For Christmas Is You. Her outrageous talent is matched only by tales of her excessive behaviour and extraordinary demands – such as one 2am arrival at a London hotel when ‘Queen Mimi’ refused to enter the property until management rolled out a red carpet lined with flickering white candles.
Yet not all is well with the woman who has sold more than 200 million records and is

President-elect Muhammadu Buhari, currently on a private visit to England, on Friday turned down the use of a Rolls Royce made available for him by the Nigerian High Commission in London.
Buhari shocked officials of the High Commission when, on landing at the Heathrow Airport, he declined to make use of the Rolls Royce and other facilities offered him.
TheNation reports that after exchanging pleasantries with the embassy officials led by the High Commissioner, Dr Dalhatu Tafida, the president-elect politely told them that his visit was strictly private and he had made arrangement for all his needs while in the UK.
He reportedly thanked them for the warm reception and quickly hopped into a less flamboyant car he had arranged for and drove out of the airport.
A source said:
“It appeared he was uncomfortable with the number of exotic cars in the convoy. Hard as the stunned diplomats present tried to convince him, he refused to bulge, insisting that since he did not inform the Commission of his visit because it was not an official trip, hence he was not entitled to such grandeur.”Buhari, yesterday, held talks with British Prime Minister David Cameron at his 10, Downing Street official residence. Top of their discussion was the continued threat to Nigeria’s security by the terror group, Boko Haram.
The Oyo State Police Command arrested a suspected member of a robbery gang on his wedding day.
Olumide Asiyanbi, 42, told newsmen that nemesis caught up with him when he was at the registry to sign the dotted lines. He also confessed that he had been involved in 10 different robbery attacks before he was arrested. He said:
“I was arrested on my wedding day. I met the gang leader, James Agba, last year. He told me he knew how we could be getting regular money. He then initiated me into the gang. I have taken part in at least 10 operations since I joined them.
We used guns but I don’t know where James was buying them. Sulaimon and Alhaji, who are also in the gang, knew how the guns were bought for our operations. I have fired shots at our targets but nobody was killed.”
The police alleged Asiyanbi was a member of a six-man-robbery gang who had terrorised residents of Challenge area of Ibadan, the state capital. The state Commissioner of Police, Muhammed Katsina, said the suspects included a 62-year-old Ghanaian.
