NNPC assures of sufficient petrol supplies

29 April 2015, 06:58Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) said it had stepped up efforts to end the distribution challenges in the fuel supply system.

The Corporation reiterated that it had enough stock of petrol to service the country for 27 days at a national consumption rate of 40 million litres per day.

The agency's publicity unit said there was sufficient stock of petrol at the coastal depots in Port Harcourt, Warri, and Calabar besides the stock it holds in the national strategic reserves.

“We are, however, working towards a speedy resolution of the issues to ensure a hitch-free distribution of products across the country,” NNPC stated.

It explained that the distribution hitch was due to the strike action by the National Association of Road Transport Owners (NARTO) and the Petroleum Tanker Drivers (PTD).

These are said to have refused to lift petroleum products from the coastal depots in protest of the huge amounts marketers owed them.

NNPC appealed to NARTO and PTD to call off the strike in the interest of the country and not unleash unnecessary hardship on Nigerians.

The distribution challenges have mainly been experienced in Abuja.
