Fuel Scarcity: We’re Working Round The Clock To Bring Relief To Nigerians, Says NNPC

nnpc-mega-station-1The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has empathised with Nigerians over the difficulties they are going through especially during this Easter celebration, due to the current fuel scarcity.
The NNPC assured that government is not taking the citizens’ patience for granted.
The spokesman of NNPC, Garba Deen Mohammed, however, pleaded with Nigerians to continue to be patient because the difficulties being experienced as a result of the situation will soon be alleviated.
“We would like to assure all Nigerians that the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources/Group Managing Director, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, and everybody else associated with this situation is working tirelessly round the clock to ensure relief is brought to Nigerians.
“Our immediate concern is to make petrol available through the interventions and processes put in place so that the queues will disappear within the next one to two weeks. As at yesterday, one cargo containing 42 million litres of petrol has completely discharged, two more petrol cargos with a combined 44 million litres are currently discharging, while another cargo containing 44 million litres is berthed and awaiting discharge. We have enough products lined up to ensure that the supply gap which created the problem is bridged.
“In order to ensure effective distribution, we are working with Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN), oil majors and over 1,000 NNPC staff nationwide to ensure we overcome the obstacles in the distribution of the products”, he said.

  • You say you are working round the clock. I don’t think so except your day has more than 24 hours. The problem with Nigeria is that mediocrity is being celebrated. The Asian tigers have no oil resources. Everything is imported yet there’s never being queues for petroleum products. Nigeria wake up. We are being seen as primitive people the way we administer ourselves.
