NNPC assures of adequate supply of petroleum products

The Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Dr. Maikanti Baru, says the Corporation has put in place adequate arrangements to guarantee steady products supply across the country to meet consumers’ demand in the New Year and beyond.

In a statement, the NNPC Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs, Mr. Ndu Ughamadu, said that Dr. Baru also advised motorists and other consumers of petroleum products against panic buying, saying that the corporation holds a stock of 30billion litres of petrol and 90,000 metric tonnes of kerosene, expected to last 60 days, assuming no fresh consignment is added.

The GMD noted that the price of petrol still remains N145 per litre, admonishing petroleum products consumers to report any station which sells above the recommended price to any offices of  the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) or other law enforcement agencies, for appropriate sanction.

Dr Baru admonished communities hosting the corporation’s facilities, such as pipelines, pump stations, amongst others, to restrain their wards from tampering with the national assets to guard against fire incidents, instances of which he noted, were recorded in some parts of the country in recent times due to the unwholesome acts of some individuals in the communities.
