Pipeline vandalism: NNPC Resuscitates Ilorin Depot after eight years

305

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), has boosted access of Ilorin, Kwara State, and its environs to petroleum products supply as the corporation’s Group Managing Director, Mallam Mele Kyari, re-commissioned the State’s NNPC Depot.

The Ilorin Depot is part of the corporation’s System 2B Pipeline Network, knocked down for more than eight years due to acts of pipeline vandalism.

Speaking at the event on Saturday in Ilorin, the NNPC GMD said the re-commissioning was aimed at restoring petroleum products supply and distribution for the benefit of Nigerians, and in line with the vision of President Buhari to make Nigerians happy and bring peace to every home.

According to a release on Sunday in Abuja by the NNPC Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs, Ndu Ughamadu, Mallam Kyari stated that the event was historic for NNPC in its quest to resuscitate its assets across the country, adding that Ilorin and its environs would be saved from the vagaries of bridging following the recommissioning of the depot.

While acknowledging the corporation’s success in restreaming a couple of its depots and pipelines, the GMD stressed that NNPC would not relent in its efforts until all pipeline networks in the country are revitalized.

Mallam Kyari declared that vandalism was inimical to all parties interests, the NNPC and host communities whose commercial activities are also negatively impacted.

Speaking, the Kwara State Governor, Mallam Abdulrahman Abdulrasaq, who witnessed the recommissioning of the depot, commended the NNPC for its foresight in restoring the operations at the facility, saying that the development would bring prosperity to the State.

“The NNPC has saved us the stress of moving products through trucks through hundreds of kilometers with its attendant hazards and will help in securing our national assets”, the Governor enthused.
