Nigeria: jet fuel shortage

Just seeing this story now ...

Flights were cancelled/delayed on Thursday and Friday due to a shortage of jet fuel.

From a This Day article published Nov. 5 ....
Marketers said yesterday they had indeed pulled out of importing the product after airline operators had stated catergorically that they would not be able to buy the fuel at the real import cost. (source)
Nigeria seems to have a fair bit of trouble with its fuel supply ... even though it's the seventh largest oil producer in the world.
