As part of efforts to clear the long queues at filling stations across the country, the management of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has announced the adoption of 24-hour depot and retail services.
The state-owned oil agency said it would continue to strive to ensure Nigerians purchase Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) commonly known as petrol without any stress.
Addressing journalists after an on-the-spot monitoring of NNPC Retail Stations and those of major and independent marketers in Abuja, NNPC Chief Operating Officer, Ventures and Chairman of the NNPC Special Task Force on Fuel Monitoring, Dr Victor Babatunde Adeniran, said the corporation would always keep faith with its mandate of ensuring energy sufficiency.
He added that the NNPC has taken adequate measures to normalize products supply situation in the country.
Speaking in a similar vein, Managing Director of PPMC, Mr Umar Ajiya, said the NNPC took delivery of two cargoes on Wednesday with 50 million litres of petrol.
He added that the corporation was expected to take delivery of a minimum of one cargo per day going forward.
Mr Ajiya said the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) personnel had been deployed to all the depots across the country to ensure that petroleum products were sold at the official price to petroleum marketers to avoid any shock in supply of petroleum products.
