The Petroleum Regulatory Agency ( PRA) has observed queues at some retail outlets in the major cities for fuel. These have been as a result of some delays along the supply chain that currenty affect the Industry and many actions being taken by government to address the issue.

It is obvious that the crisis in Europe also continues to affect the supply of petroleum products all Over the world. However, the Government and the Oil Importers continue to ensure the avalability of products in Sierra Leone.

The PRA would like to clarify the following:

There are enough petroleum products in the country and no need for stockpiling.

Government is working closely with the Oil Marketing Companies to ensure that additional petroleum products are imported to avoid supply disruptions.

The highest monthly rise in pump prices in the International Oil Markets was recorded in
March 2022. Sierra Leone responded accordingly by cutting most of it fuel levies to mitigate the impact on citizens.

The current Russia / Ukraine war is exacerbating the effect on supplies because of sanctions. At the moment, there is an imbalance between supply and demand worldwide leading to hike in prices and shortages in several countries.

Since diesel is largely used in industries and for other commercial purposes, users in this
segment also seek to fill up storage thereby hedging against further rising costs.

However, the maximum pump price of petroleum products remains Le15,000 throughout the Country.

As Govemment continues to monitor development in the industry, oil Operators are urged to prioritise deliveries to retailers and make their products available to the public.

The End.

Dr John Lahai drops a real clanger...lecturers react

Evidence has surfaced that contradicts one of John Idriss Lahai's claims. And, as I've already stated, it's a clear sign that not everything he writes is true. He is doing the right thing, but depending entirely on rumor may jeopardize his kindness to Sierra Leone. Brima Ronnie Kargbo, a youthful and charismatic Sierra Leonean who works for NATCOM as the Director of Administration and Human Resource Management Director, was featured in a publication by John Idriss Lahai. In an exact paraphrase of his "nemakui" English writing skills, Lahai claimed: "Brima Ronnie Kargbo indeed started his Bachelor's degree studies at Njala University. It is also true that he abandoned the course halfway and moved to the UK (this was during the latter part of the civil war: 1996/1997-ish). As such, what is not true, and for which Njala University should investigate (to verify my claim) and, thereafter, sue Brima Ronnie Kargbo for forgery of their certificate (a
