“Lift Suspension of Petroleum Products Supply To Border Communities” Yewa Communities appeal to FG

The people of Yewa communities living in boarder communities of Idi-Iroko, Imeko-Afon, Oja- Odan and other areas in Ogun State have appealed to the Nigerian federal government to lift the suspension on supply of petroleum products within a twenty-kilometre radius to the country’s border with the Republic of Benin. The national President of Yewa Defender Movement, Temi Amusan, in a press statement stressed that “The suspension order by the federal government since 2019 has negatively impacted on the socio-economic activities with attendant hardships to lives and livelihood of people living in the border towns and communities across Yewaland particularly in Idiroko axis as only four licensed independent petroleum marketers are allowed to dispense the commodity to hundreds of thousands of people living in the area”. It will be recalled that the federal government of Nigeria, in November, 2019 had announced the suspension.
