Fuel scarcity to end soon- NNPC

The Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) has assured Nigerians that the fuel scarcity triggered by recent importation of toxic Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) will soon end.

NNPC Group Managing Director (GMD), Mele Kyari explained that the recent importation of toxic Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), popularly known as petrol, into the country was not deliberate.

According to him, there was no way the importers would have known that the petrol contained methanol, as checking for the substance was not a primary requirement for the relevant bodies.

 “No one out there will bring this product into this country deliberately,” There is no way we would have seen this methanol except your supplier decides to disclose to you because it is not part of their requirements to look for this.”

Kyari stressed that the company was not aware of the presence of methanol in the imported fuel and has taken measures to manage the situation.

He explained that the loading terminal from where the toxic petrol was brought into the country has been supplying gasoline for a very long time, as it was a major terminal supplying fuel not only to West Africa but many countries in Europe.

The NNPC chief assured Nigerians that about 2.1 billion litres of the product would have been injected into the system before the end of the month.

“I can assure you that we have taken every necessary step to make sure that we maintain supply sufficiency, and as I have just reiterated for the benefit of Nigerians that we have a robust supply plan.

“By the end of this month, we will have up to 2.1 billion litres of PMS in this country (that will not contain methanol). Let us put it on record that what we always call panic-buying is nothing. I can assure you that we will contain this situation”
