While the current scarcity of diesel and other petroleum products affects socio-economic activities across the nation,
mobile phone operator, Airtel Sunday said that the situation is presently impacting negatively on its commitments to delivering best-in-class quality of service and seamless telephony experience to all Nigerians.
This was made known in a statement by Airtel management on Sunday
The statement reads
“While we are currently doing everything within our means as
well as going the extra mile to ensure that all our base stations and switches are up and running, it is sad to note that it is becoming increasingly difficult to replenish current stock of
diesel due to the lingering scarcity of the products.
“We are also concerned that, if the situation persists, it may have adverse effects on our network, impacting both voice and data services.
“Airtel, therefore wishes to assure all customers that we will continue working with all our partners and stakeholders to mitigate any negative impact as we remain committed to our
promise of providing exceptional services just as we seek the
cooperation and understanding of all whilst apologizing for any inconvenience at this time”,
