Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) has assured the public of an adequate supply of petrol to combat the long queues persisting in filling stations across the country.
The NNPC boss, Malam Mele Kyari, in a meeting with the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) and Petrol Tanker Drivers (PTD) in Abuja gave an optimist assessment about the crisis.
“We like to assure Nigerians that we have an adequate supply of Premium Motor Spirit,” he said during the event.
“Currently, we have over 1.7 billion litres of fuel in our hands both in marine and on land.
“This will ensure that scarcity created by panic buying will now be freed so that normalcy will return to filling stations across the country.”
We have begun loading and sending out trucks at all its depositories to tackle the current scarcity.
“This means that we have the capacity to load out excessively from all depots. We have put in place measures to ensure 24 hours loading in all depots.”
