NNPC Increases Fuel Supply In Abuja To 250 Trucks

Following the queues that emanated over the weekend at the fuel stations in the Federal Capital Territory metropolis, the management of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), today, Monday, February 22, increased the number of trucks deployed to Abuja and its environs from 160 to 250 per day.

Statement from the Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Ohi Alegbe in Abuja explained that the queues were as a result of a re-run election that held in Niger State over the weekend, which affected truck movement from the Suleja depot.

The management said: “Apart from the additional injection of volumes of petrol into the market, the Pipelines and Products Marketing Company (PPMC) has stepped up monitoring across fuel stations to ensure strict compliance with laid down rules and regulations on the sales and distribution of petroleum products.”

The management, however, called on members of the public to refrain from all forms of hoarding, diversion and panic buying of petroleum products, as it will meet the demands of consumers in Abuja and beyond.
