NNPC Warns Consumers against Adulterated Products

By Dipo Olowookere

Members of the public have been advised to be mindful of the quality of products they buy for use to forestall explosion, knockdown of their engines, equipment or any such other ugly incidents which could lead to loss of lives or injuries.

This caution was made by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) following reports that products from vandalized pipelines, or outrightly adulterated products were being sold to unsuspecting consumers.

This, the petroleum agency said, has led to untoward incidents involving petroleum products consumers in parts of the country.

The NNPC urged consumers to seek assistance from any offices of the Department of Petroleum Resources, DPR, NNPC depots or offices nationwide, when in doubt of the quality of a purchase.

The agency said products from its depots are subjected to strict quality control to ensure that they are fit for use.

“Motorists and other consumers of petroleum products across the country are enjoined not to engage in panic buying as NNPC has over 32 days sufficiency for petrol, and adequate volumes of diesel and kerosene to meet their demand,” it said.
