One Billion Litres Of Petrol Available To Tackle Supply Gap – NNPC

Following the fuel scarcity in major parts of the country, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has assured that the organisation has enough petrol to address the supply gap in the country.

The corporation stated that there are one billion litres of the product in stock.

Channels tv reports that the NNPC Group Executive Director (Downstream), Mr Adetunji Adeyemi, gave the assurance during a press conference in Abuja on Tuesday.

“As of today, NNPC has over One (1) billion Litres of certified PMS stock that is safe for use in vehicles and machinery,” he was quoted to have said.

According to him, the NNPC is also expecting about 2.3 billion litres of petrol in the country by month-end.

To ensure seamless access to petrol, the NNPC also directed its depots and outlets to begin 24 hours operations.
