NNPC Cautions Against Panic Buying As Queues Resurfaces At Filling Stations


The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation NNPC has enjoined motorists in Abuja, its environs and other parts of the Country not to engage in any panic buying of petroleum products.

NNPC assures motorists that the Corporation has robust stock of petrol, which is sufficient to serve the nation for more than thirty days.

This plea comes on the heels of queues noticeable in some fuel stations, especially in Abuja.

A statement by the Group general Manager Public Affairs Division of the NNPC, Sir Ndu Ughamadu advised motorists to report any marketer selling above one hundred and forty-five naira per litre of petrol or hoarding the products to the Department of Petroleum Resources DPR which is statutorily empowered to deal with such issues.

DPR has offices located in all parts of the country.
