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.
“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.
