19 November 2015, 16:09

Abuja -  The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has assured that it has enough volume of petrol in stock to satisfy the nation’s domestic consumption requirement, noting that the prevailing fuel queues in some major cities across the country have nothing to do with the lack of supply of petroleum products.

Speaking at a press conference convened to update the public with the current fuel supply situation, the Executive Director, Commercial of the Pipeline and Products Marketing Company, Justine Ezeala, stated that a projected volume of 1.4 billion litres of petrol are available for distribution to fuel stations across the country all through the month of November.

“NNPC Retail has 513 retail outlets all over the country and the strategy is that every one of these stations is designed to have products at all times. In addition we have decided that most of the mega stations will adopt 24 hours operation model and where for security reasons that cannot be met, we are going to have extended hours of operation in such location starting from 5am to about 10.pm daily,” he said.

Throwing more light on the operations of the NNPC Retail, Oladipo Fagbola said that in addition to the commencement of the 24-hour service, the company has opened up some hotlines to enable members of the public provide useful feedback and intelligence on the operations of Mega and affiliate filling stations across the country.

He urged members of the public to provide useful information to assist the Corporation achieve its mandate and responsibility to the fuel consumers.
