…assures of nationwide product availability, seamless supply

In line with the Presidential directive. the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has announced measures to guarantee seamless distribution of petroleum products across the country during the lockdown in some states and beyond.

The Managing Director of Petroleum Products Marketing Company (PPMC), NNPC’s downstream subsidiary, Mr Musa Lawan, said the company’s  workforce had been mobilized to provide loading services throughout the period.

“If you recall, two days ago, the Group Managing Director of NNPC, Mallam Mele Kyari, stated that we have 60 days sufficiency of Premium Motor Spirit. That is very correct.

“As a matter of fact, we have about 2.68 billion litres of petrol in-country and in marine storage. At the prevailing daily consumption rate of 45 million litres, that translates to roughly 60 days,’’ Lawan said in a statement signed by the Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division of the Corporation, Dr Kennie Obateru.

“The PPMC boss called on motorists and other consumers of petroleum products not to engage in hoarding or panic buying of petrol, noting that the Corporation was ready to provide enough products across the country,’’ he said.

Lawan also disclosed that two more vessels laden with petrol were expected to berth at the Lagos Ports by Tuesday, adding that the vessels would be discharging 250 million litres of petrol.

On the recent complaints of non-provision safety kits against  Coronavirus for tanker drivers by the National Association of Road Transport Owners (NARTO), Lawan assured that the PPMC was already engaging the stakeholders to address the issue of safety kits
