(BBC) – Nigeria’s fuel wholesalers say they have reached a deal with the government that should soon see the end of the crippling fuel crisis.

The agreement was reached after talks with the finance minister, Danladi Fasali from the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association told the BBC.

The wholesalers had stopped distributing fuel after alleging the government owed them $1bn (£625m).

The shortage has had an impact on the country’s aviation and banking sectors.

The party of President-elect Muhammadu Buhari, who is due to take office on Friday, had accused the outgoing government of “sabotage” for failing to deal with the crisis.
