No Cause For Alarm over Fuel Scarcity Scare – NNPC

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC is not losing any sleep over a strike action by the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association Of Nigeria, PENGASSAN because it has a war chest of over 2.9 Billion Litres of Petrol to arrest any possible shortfall in supply during the festive season.

The assurance from the Corporation follows the breakdown of talks between the Federal Government and members of PENGASSAN on the implementation of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS).

According to the Group Managing Director of the Corporation, Mr. Mele Kyari, the industrial action embarked upon by PENGASSAN would not lead to scarcity of petroleum products as all fuel stations and petrol depots in the country have enough stock of products to service consumers demand

While expressing hope that the industrial dispute would be settled amicably, Mr. Kyari assured that the Corporation has enough in its reserve to facilitate seamless movement of people, goods and services across the country in the forthcoming Christmas season and beyond.

In a statement by the Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Dr. Kennie Obateru, the NNPC GMD reiterated the Corporation’s determination to make the 2020 end-of-year festivities a zero fuel queue period just like the preceding year, noting that critical stockholders in the petroleum products supply and distribution chain such as tanker drivers, depot owners and road transport owners have been mobilized to ensure hitch-free season.
