The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation Retail Limited has disclosed the reason for the re-emergence of fuel queues in some major cities across the country, assuring however, that it was addressing the root cause of the challenge.
The Company which stated that it has 30-day sufficiency of fuel, urged motorists to desist from engaging in panic buying as normalcy will soon be restored.
The NNPC Retail Ltd blamed the emergence of fuel queues on reduced load out at the Apapa Depot in Lagos.
In a statement issued on Thursday, the NNPC Retail Ltd., said it “notes the appearance of fuel queues in some parts of Lagos and a few other locations around the country”, adding that “This is due to reduced Depot load-out in Apapa, Lagos, over a few days, and the root cause has since been addressed.
“We assure all Nigerians that there is ample supply with sufficiency of at least 30 days. Motorists are advised to desist from panic buying as distribution will normalize over the next couple of days,” the statement signed by the NNPC Retail Management, said.
