NNPC Advised the General Public, not to Panic about Fuel Scarcity
The general public is advised not to purchase Premium Motor Spirit, also known as petrol, in a frenzy NewsReport gathered.
It is, therefore, unnecessary to be concerned about petrol scarcity during the holiday season and beyond.
The NNPC is also not aware of any plan by the government to cause an increase in the pump price of petroleum. The Nigerian Midstream and Downstream Petroleum Regulatory Authority (NMDPRA) has made that declaration last week.
In view of these assurances, therefore, the NNPC is advising motorists and other consumers of petrol to maintain their regular pattern of the purchase of petrol without getting into a panic situation that may send the wrong signals around the country.
The NNPC is also engaging all stakeholders to ensure the smooth supply and distribution of products to every part of the country during the festive season and beyond.
