…says corporation has 2 billion litres of petrol in stock 

MELE Kyari, group managing director, GMD, of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, on Tuesday, October 27, assured motorists of ample availability of Premium Motor Spirit, PMS, in the country.

Kyari also revealed that the NNPC has more than 60-day sufficiency of petrol in its various strategic depots across the country, urging motorists not to engage in panic buying.

 In a press release by Kennie Obateru,  group general manager, Group Public Affairs Division, NNPC,  he attributed the emergence of queues in some petrol stations across the country to the disruption of the free flow of vehicular movement occasioned by curfews and restrictions of movement particularly in Lagos State.

Kyari urged motorists not to engage in panic-buying of petroleum products as the NNPC has over 2billion litres of petrol in stock to guarantee steady supply and at least 60-day-product supply sufficiency nationwide.

“The disruptions or curtailment of free flow of vehicular movement occasioned by the ‘End SARS Protests’ and the attendant curfews, restrictions, and vandalism, particularly in Lagos obviously affected petroleum products movement and distribution. With the easing of the curfews and restrictions of movement by various state governors, normalcy is expected to return to the petroleum products supply chain in the next couple of days,” Mallam Kyari reassured.

He expressed NNPC’s commitment to a zero-fuel queue scenario, maintaining that the Corporation has emplaced measures that would guarantee energy security for the country.
