Fuel Scarcity: NNPC Appeals to Nigerians, Explains Steps Being Taken to Address Crisis
The corporation said it is not taking for granted the patience exhibited by the citizens as it works towards tackling the challenges that have resulted in the fuel crisis.
We wish to empathize with the difficulties Nigerians are presently going through due to the current fuel situation.
NNPC stated that its immediate concern was to make petrol available through the interventions and processes put in place. It said that as at 4pm on Friday, one cargo containing 42 million litres of premium motor spirit (PMS) also known as petrol had finished discharging while two other cargoes containing 44 million litres of PMS were discharging products at a terminal.
The statement added that another cargo with 44 million litres of PMS has berthed and will be discharging its content later today. The corporation added that it has enough stock lined up to plug the supply gap in the short term while collaborative efforts are being made with major oil marketers and over 1,000 NNPC staff nationwide to address the challenges.
We have enough products lined up to ensure that the supply gap which created the problem is bridged.
NNPC stated that for the long term, it is working to fix Nigeria’s refineries and ensure optimal operations. It also said that a ‘Direct Sale Direct Purchase’ mechanism which would further ameliorate the situation, is expected to commence in the first week of April.
