Fuel Queues: Don’t Panic Buy PMS, There Is Enough In Stock

The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPC Ltd) has announced that it has sufficient stock of petroleum products, and the public should avoid panic buying.

Garba Muhammad, Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, NNPC Ltd., in a statement on Thursday, said the current queue situation in some parts of Abuja and its environs was a result of delays in the arrival of fuel trucks.

Muhammad disclosed that this was happening due to heavy flooding that had submerged parts of the highway passing through Lokoja, Kogi.

The manager said an incidence of a failed road section around Badegi-Agaie highway in Niger State also contributed.

“Consequently, vehicles, especially fuel tankers, are finding alternative roads to get to their intended destinations.

“NNPC Ltd is working assiduously, in collaboration with relevant government agencies, to open up this major highway.

“While we do that, we urge the general public to remain calm and not to engage in panic buying of petroleum products,” he advised.

According to Garba, the current situation is temporary, adding that it has nothing to do with the Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) shortage as NNPC Ltd has a thirty-day product sufficiency.
