The House of Representatives’ Committee on Petroleum (Downstream), has expressed confidence that the measures put in place by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation to avert fuel supply shortage would be successful this year.
According to the committee, this was due to efforts that went into the planning and execution of the zero-fuel scarcity strategy by the national oil firm and its subsidiaries.
The Chairman of the committee, Joseph Akinlaja, disclosed this during an oversight visit to the NNPC headquarters in Abuja.
This is coming as the NNPC announced on Thursday that it unveiled Nigeria’s multi-billion dollar investment opportunities in the deep-offshore frontiers at the 10th World Energy Capital Assembly in London, United Kingdom.
The Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, NNPC, Ndu Ughamadu, said in a statement that the House committee commended the corporation on the strategies deployed so far to make petroleum products available to Nigerians throughout the end of year festivities and beyond.
Akinlaja was quoted as saying, “We are impressed by the presentation and we are sure that there will be no war room here again because of products scarcity. You have done very well and I’m happy that Nigerians are going to travel effortlessly at this period of the year.”
