The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has alerted the public of contaminated diesel that is harmful to machines and environment being sold across the country.
It said the low grade and contaminated diesel (Automative Gas Oil) is being offered at discounted prices to attract unsuspecting buyers.
The Managing Director, NNPC Retail Ltd, Sir Billy Okoye, who gave the warning in a report, admonished motorists to be wary of the off-spec products.
“The warning became necessary because the low grade, contaminated diesel is harmful to machines and environment.
“NNPC Retail Limited as a market leader, considers it incumbent upon it to alert the public on the subject ” Okoye said in
a release by NNPC Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Dr Kennie Obateru, given to Persecondnews.
While assuring consumers that NNPC Retail Ltd deals only in premium, high-quality products in the interest of Nigerian motorists and users, Okoye urged consumers to patronize the company’s stations for quality products.
As a deregulated product like petrol, diesel is also imported by other major and independent marketers in the country.
