Unending Petrol Queues, NNPC Insists Adequate Supply In Place ..Says 30 Days Stock Available

Yemisi Izuora.

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has reassured motorists in Abuja, its environs and other parts of the Country that it has enough product in place and as such they should not engage in any panic buying of petroleum products.

The Corporation said it has robust stock of PMS, otherwise called petrol, which is sufficient to serve the nation for more than 30 days.

This plea comes on the heels of queues noticeable in some fuel stations, especially in Abuja.

The NNPC therefore advised motorists to report any marketer selling above N145 per litre of petrol or hoarding the products to the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) which is statutorily empowered to deal with such issues, saying that the Department of Petroleum Resources, DPR has offices located in all parts of the country and that law enforcement agencies have been empowered to mete out appropriate sanctions to operators of fuel stations who engage in hoarding or sell products above the recommended band.
