NNPCL, the Nigerian National Petroleum Company, has allayed concerns over gasoline shortages caused by the appearance of lines in several areas of the nation.
This information was provided by NNPCL in a statement Thursday that was posted on its official X account and was signed by the business’ retail division.
The business ascribed the recent decrease in depot loadout at Apapa, Lagos, as the cause of the resurgence of lines in Lagos and several areas of the Federal Capital Territory.
NNPCL said that it has enough fuel for 30 days while stating that the problem has been resolved.
The business warned drivers against making rash purchases because the product’s distribution will return to normal in a few days.
“NNPC Retail Ltd. notices the emergence of gasoline lines in a few places across the nation, including Lagos.
“This is because the Apapa, Lagos, depot’s loadout was lowered over a few days; the main reason has now been fixed.
“We guarantee that there is enough food for all Nigerians to last at least 30 days. The distribution will return to normal during the following few days, therefore motorists are recommended to refrain from panic buying, according to the statement.
Recalls that on Wednesday, there were gasoline lines that appeared in Lagos and several areas of Abuja, alarming drivers.
The Federal Government ended the fuel subsidy in June, which caused the price of gasoline to rise to over 617 per liter.
