Following large cues of vehicles owing to Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) scarcity across the country, The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) stated that it has adopted a 24-hour depot and retail services to clear the fuel queues in major states across the country.
Dr. Victor Babatunde Adeniran, NNPC Chief Operating Officer, Ventures and Chairman of the NNPC Special Task Force on Fuel Monitoring, made this disclosure to journalists after an on-the-spot monitoring of NNPC Retail stations and those of Major and Independent Marketers in Abuja.
Adeniran posited that the Corporation would always keep faith with its mandate of ensuring energy sufficiency, adding that the corporation has taken adequate measures to normalize products supply situation in the Country.
Speaking in a similar vein, the Managing Director of Pipeline Products and Marketing Company (PPMC), Umar Ajiya, was of the view that the NNPC took delivery of two cargoes recently with 50 million litres of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) otherwise known as petrol. He added that the corporation was expected to take delivery of a minimum of one cargo per day going forward.
Ajiya stated clearly that the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) personnel had been deployed to all the depots across the country to ensure that petroleum products were sold at the official price to petroleum marketers to avoid any shock in supply of petroleum products.
