NNPC promises Nigerians that Fuel Queues To Disappear By Weekend

A lot of Nigerians are frustrated as the festive season is celebrated with long queues at the filling station, with fuel sold at a hiked price. This had gotten to the notice of the NNPC. And the NNPC has made a timely intervention.

Nigeria National Petroleum Company (NNPC) affirms on Thursday in Abuja that fuel lines would normalize on Friday and disappear during the weekend.

NNPC spokesman Ndu Ughamadu, said an increase in the number of petrol trucks entering FCT to reduce ranks in the city.
He reported that director of the NNPC group Maikanti Bar met with the leaders of the Nigerian Association of Road Transport Owners (NARTO) and Petrol Tankers Drivers (PTD) in order to tackle the current situation in the country.
It turned out that the people who consumed 35 million liters suddenly increased consumption to 85 million liters due to diverting to neighboring countries.

“Dr Baru just today directed that more trucks be moved into the FCT to douse tension and increase supply. He met with NARTO and PTD and they assured that trucks would be closely monitored.
“He said Lagos should be maintained at 300 trucks but the actual figure coming into Abuja should be increased by 150.
“Port Harcourt refinery has also increased refining and so by tomorrow (Friday) queues should normalise and by weekend it would have disappeared,’’ Ughamadu said.

Maikanti Bar mentioned that the scarcity was artificial as the corporation “as at today has adequate products and a 25-day sufficiency.’’
