Minister of State for Petroleum Resources and Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) Dr Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu has expressed regret at the current fuel scarcity in the country.
In a series of tweets marking his arrival on microblogging site Twitter, the minister said actions are already been taken to assuage the suffering of the people.
“The recent challenge in easy access to PMS is deeply regretted but I assure that heightened actions are underway to solve this,” he tweeted.
“I have directed the duo of PPMC and PPPRA to embark on renewed special supply intervention measures.
“I am certain that these measures will ensure a countrywide availability of petroleum products ahead of the forthcoming yuletide and beyond.
“I assure that these renewed measures will see an additional supply via massive truck-out to guarantee nationwide product penetration.”
As the Honorable Minister of State, Petroleum Resources and Group Managing Director, @NNPCgroup, my team and I will work for every Nigerian.
