Fuel Queues : NNPC Deploys Monitoring Team to Check DiversionFeatured, Latest News, Press Releases Wednesday, April 15th, 2015
The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC Tuesday assured Nigerians that the noticeable queues at fuel stations in Abuja and its environs would soon disappear.
A statement issued by the group general manager of the corporation Ohi Alegbe disclosed that the Corporation has increased fuel truck-out from the Suleja depot to Abuja to ease distribution challenges.
The Corporation also noted that the artificially induced distribution challenge in the FCT was as a result of the few days lull in the loading gantries caused by the recently concluded general elections across the country.
While calling on members of the public to resist the temptation of hoarding, product diversion and panic buying of petroleum products, NNPC noted that it currently has enough product in strategic reserves to meet 30 days forward consumption.
The Corporation noted that a special monitoring team has been deployed to check incidents of products diversion by some unscrupulous marketers and ensure that appropriate sanctions are brought to bear on such unpatriotic acts.
