The Consumers Association in Guinea says it welcomes the first shipment of diesel fuel to the country at a time when the population is facing a fuel shortage following the explosion of its main oil depot.
The government assures that the stock received will be distributed immediately and evenly.
While the source of the delivery remains unknown, it should be noted that authorities in Conakry signed a deal with Cote d’Ivoire to supply 50 million litres of petrol per month.
A similar promise was made by a neighbouring country – Sierra Leone.
The agreed quantity should help Guinean meet its energy demand.
In a chat with WADR, President of the Guinean Consumers’ Association Ousmane Kéita believes the crisis is far from over.
He insists Guinea still needs all the support it can get from all countries.
