House of Representative members said this after they passed a resolution to investigate the source of the adulterated fuel that was imported into the country recently.

The lawmakers concluded that the suspension should still remain until the outcome of the investigation, which is into the adulterated fuel problem.

The Chief Whip of the House, Rep. Mohammed Tahir Monguno, was the one who moved the motion.

He said the lawmakers should decide on the matter to be sure that the bad product does not cause more damage and hardship to Nigerians.

Other members also contributed to the matter and said many Nigerians have started reporting engine failures in their motors, like sudden breakdowns of their cars on the roads.

Rep. Isiaka Ibrahim said aside from motors that might breakdown, the worst case scenario is if the bad fuel is aviation fuel.

The lawmakers also directed the Committee on Petroleum Resources (Downstream) to make sure that their investigation covers all other petroleum products that have been imported into the country recently.

This is to find out if the products followed the standards and were safe for use.

A Nigerian agency confirmed that the bad fuel was circulating in the country.
