The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has assured Nigerians of an adequate supply of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) better known as petrol.
A statement on Monday by Garba Muhammad, Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, NNPC, in Abuja, said that the NNPC had over 1.7 billion litres of petrol in stock.
“The NNPC has over 1.7 billion litres of petrol in stock and more product is expected to arrive into the country daily over the coming weeks and months,” the statement, signed by the Group General Manager (Public Affairs), Garba Muhammad, added.
“It is, therefore, unnecessary to entertain any fear of scarcity of petrol throughout the festive season and beyond.”
“The NNPC is also not aware of any plan by government to cause an increase in the pump price of petroleum.
“The Nigerian Midstream and Downstream Petroleum Regulatory Authority (NMDPRA) has made that declaration last week,” he explained.
