In the midst of persistent petrol scarcity, the Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Limited has claimed to have enough fuel to last 30 days.
The company made this known in a notice released on Thursday, October 19 through its official Twitter account.
The statement was sent in reaction to increased fuel waits at retail stations in several sections of Lagos and around the country, with the business emphasizing that the underlying reason of the queues had been addressed.
The statement read: “NNPC Retail Limited notes the appearance of fuel queues in some parts of Lagos and a few other locations around the country. This is due to reduced Depot loadout 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 the sufficiency of at least 30 days. Motorists are advised to desist from panic buying as distribution will normalize over the next couple of days.”
