The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), on Tuesday assured that there will be sufficiency of petroleum products that will last beyond the Christmas and New Year festivities.
Allaying fears on scarcity of products even as normalcy of supplies return at fuel stations in and around Abuja, Mr. Garba Deen Muhammad, Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, said:
“The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Ltd wishes to express its appreciation to Nigerians for always heeding its advisories not to engage in panic buying of petrol.
“The NNPC is once again giving Nigerians strong assurance that we have product sufficiency that will last far beyond the festive period.
“Indeed, our stock has risen from a reserve of 1.7 billion litres to over 2 billion litres within the last one month.
“Thus, we once again urge Nigerians not to engage in panic buying but to fully enjoy the spirit of the festive season as we continue to work tirelessly to ensure sufficient supply of petrol to every part of the country.
