Subsidy payments: FG Will Dialogue With Oil Marketers – Finance Minister
Okonjo-Iweala, who is also the Coordinating Minister for the Economy, gave the assurance at a news conference on Thursday in Abuja.
Her assurance is coming on the heels of the return of long fuel queues in Abuja occasioned by oil marketers’ threat to suspend operations nationwide within seven days over the continued delay in the payment of their subsidy claims.

She, however, warned that government would not succumb to cheap blackmail by some marketers, who had threatened to embark on strike because of delayed subsidy claims payment.
