NNPC assures Nigerians of adequate fuel supply

Fuel scarcity spreads nationwide

Despite long queues at fuel station, NNPC says there will be adequate supply of fuel.

Despite reports of long queues at petrol stations in some major cities, including Abuja and Lagos, on Christmas day, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, management on Wednesday told consumers that there will be adequate supply of fuel throughout the yuletide period.

The reassurance came against the background of the reported closure of the Warri Refinery for three weeks to allow for routine maintenance.

The Acting Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division of the Corporation, Fidel Pepple, said in Abuja on Wednesday that there is no truth in the report, pointing out that the clarification was necessary to ease the anxiety it generated among Nigerians.

“The management of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, has confirmed that the Warri Refinery, which is operated by its subsidiary, Warri Refining and Petrochemical Company, WRPC, is up and running and has no maintenance issues to warrant its shut-down,” Mr. Pepple said.
