NNPC Assures Fuel Scarcity and Queues Will be Cleared by May 1

The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Ltd, NNPCL, has assured Nigerians that the ongoing fuel scarcity and queues will be cleared out by Wednesday, May 1. The Chief Communications Officer, NNPCL, Olufemi Soneye, disclosed this to newsmen on Tuesday in Lagos. Soneye disclosed that the company currently has an availability of products exceeding 1.5 billion liters, which can last for at least 30 days.

Seneye stated “Unfortunately, we experienced a three-day disruption in distribution due to logistical issues, which has since been resolved. “However, as you know, overcoming such disruptions typically requires double the amount of time to return to normal operations,” he said.

He said: “Some folks are taking advantage of this situation to maximize profits. “Thankfully, product scarcity has been minimal lately, but these folks might be exploiting the situation for unwarranted gain.“The lines will be cleared out between today and tomorrow.

Soneye attributed the disruption to logistical issues but assured that the lines would be cleared between Tuesday and Wednesday. Meanwhile, the National Vice President of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria, lPMAN, Hammed Fashola, expressed optimism that queues in Lagos and Ogun would ease off this week. Fashola, however, stated that the queues in Abuja might tarry a bit due to the distance to Lagos.
