The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, Sunday, insisted that there is no impending petroleum products scarcity in the country, arising from the threat of strike action by the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC.
In a statement in Abuja, Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs of the NNPC, Mr. Ndu Ughamadu, advised motorists not to engage in panic buying, stating that the corporation would do all it could to ensure the strike action, if embarked upon, does not impact negatively on fuel distribution nationwide.
He disclosed that the NNPC currently has 39 days petroleum products sufficiency and about 25 days products availability on land, stressing that motorists and other consumers of petroleum products are assured of adequate stock to meet their energy needs.
Ughamadu advised Nigerians to remain vigilant and volunteer information to the Department of Petroleum Resources, DPR, or to any law enforcement agency around them, on any station that attempts to take advantage of any prevailing situation in the country at the expense of the consumers.
Meanwhile, the NNPC stated further that 2.18 billion litres of white products were distributed and sold by the Petroleum Products Marketing Company, PPMC, in July 2018 compared with 1.46 billion litres in June 2018. Read more
