NNPCL Assures Swift Resolution of Fuel Queues

The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Ltd. (NNPCL) has moved swiftly to address the ongoing fuel scarcity and queues plaguing fuel stations across the country. Chief Communications Officer, Mr. Olufemi Soneye, confirmed that the situation would be resolved by Wednesday, April 31.

Soneye emphasized that the NNPCL currently maintains an impressive product stockpile of over 1.5 billion liters, ensuring a supply buffer that can last for at least 30 days. He acknowledged a recent three-day distribution disruption due to logistical challenges but assured the public that normal operations were swiftly restored.

“Regrettably, some opportunistic actors have sought to exploit the situation for undue gain,” Soneye stated. However, he reassured Nigerians that the queues would dissipate within the next 24 hours.

Mr. Hammed Fashola, National Vice President of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (lPMAN), echoed optimism. While Lagos and Ogun queues are expected to ease this week, Abuja may experience a slight delay due to logistical complexities.

The NNPCL remains committed to ensuring a seamless fuel supply chain, and corrective measures are underway.
