..Explains Queue Situation In Abuja
The Nigerian National Petroleum Company, Limited, NNPC, says it has enough stock of Premium Motor Spirit, PMS also called petrol enough to meet domestic demand.
It said the public should not embark on panic buying as there is no longer need for that.
The NNPC is a statement explained that the current queue situation in some parts of Abuja and its environs is as a result of delays in arrival of fuel trucks.
This is happening as a result of heavy flooding that has submerged parts of the highway passing through Lokoja, Kogi State and also an incidence of a failed road section around Badegi-Agaie highway in Niger State.
Consequently, vehicles, especially fuel tankers, are finding alternative roads to get to their intended destinations.
The NNPC said it is working assiduously, in collaboration with relevant government agencies, to open up this major highway.
“While we do that, we urge the general public to remain calm and not to engage in panic buying of petroleum products.
“The current situation is temporary and has nothing to do with shortage of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) as the NNPC Ltd has a thirty-day products’ sufficiency.” Garba Deen Muhammad spokesman of the company assured in the statement.
