Christmas: NNPC Assures Abundant Fuel Supply Nationwide, Stocks 170Million Litres Of Petrol

In the wake of the threats issued by oil marketers that it will shut down depots over unpaid subsidy – which may likely cause scarcity of petrol – the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), has assured Nigerians that it will make the product abundantly available across the country.

The apex oil firm also said it had over 170 million litres of PMS in stock at some of its depots across the country following successful rehabilitation of the facilities along with connecting pipelines to forestall dependence on private sector depots.

The Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Petroleum (Downstream), Joseph Akinlaja, said this on Wednesday during an oversight visit to the NNPC headquarters in Abuja.

Nigerian Guardian quoted him as saying that the corporation would ensure that Nigerians travel effortlessly at this period of the year.

He said: “We are impressed by the presentation and we are sure 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.”

The marketers had threatened to shut down their depots if government failed to pay the subsidy arrears owned them, a situation, which could trigger scarcity of petroleum products.

Also speaking, the Group Managing Director of NNPC, Dr. Maikanti Baru, reassured Nigerians of the corporation’s preparedness to ensure zero-scarcity of petroleum products during the festive season and beyond.
