3 min read

– Petrol queues in Lagos had considerably reduced, adding that Abuja would be free by Sunday.

– NNPC appealed to Nigerians to bear with the corporation, saying that it was working hard to ensure that the refineries were back on stream.

The Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) said it had made special arrangement to provide intervention trucks that would ensure adequate supply of petroleum products in the country.

Mr Victor Adeniran, NNPC’s Group Executive Director, Commercial and Investment, disclosed this during a monitoring tour of filling stations in Abuja on Saturday.

“Since Thursday, we have made special arrangement for intervention trucks.

“If you go round the streets of Abuja, you will see that virtually all the stations are selling.

“As we are going extensively on this, you will see that queues will reduce,” he said.

Adeniran said that NNPC currently supplied 100 per cent instead of the 48 per cent supply under normal circumstance.

He said that the corporation embarked on the 100 per cent supply because other complimentary marketers were not bringing in products.

He attributed the ongoing scarcity to strikes by Petroleum Tanker Drivers and PPPRA.

This, he said, had effect on movement of the product from both off shore and onshore.

“As for the product, we have product, the minister gave instruction to ensure supply on a 30-day basis.

“As I am talking to you now, we have the supply for March and out of the 31 days in March; we have supply for each day.

“Nigeria’s consumption is one vessel cargo of 30,000 metric tonnes per day and so, we have 31 vessels already lined up for the month of March,” he said.

According to him, it is aside the nine that are currently being discharged in various ports and jetties in Lagos, Warri, Port Harcourt and Calabar.
