NNPC addresses fuel queues

05 November 2015, 06:54Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has stepped up  measures to eliminate fuel queues across some major cities in the country.

Ohi Alegbe, the Group General Manager of Public Affairs, said the corporation had injected additional volumes of Premium Motor Spirit to enrich product availability in the affected areas. 

Alegbe said NNPC was working assiduously with its downstream subsidiary company, the Pipelines and Products Marketing Company (PPMC)and other downstream players to consolidate the prevailing stability in the supply and distribution of fuel.

The corporation had commissioned an inspection team from the PPMC to visit operational areas to ensure compliance with rules regarding loading and product evacuation.

He said the corporation noted that the initiative to eliminate fuel queues had been bolstered with the approval by the Federal Government for the immediate payment of N413 billion to oil marketers.

This is outstanding payment for subsidy claims.

“It is our belief that with the outstanding payment due to oil marketers now assured, the marketers and other downstream players will join hands with the NNPC to guarantee that the nation remains wet with petroleum products all year round” he said.
