NNPC boss rushes home as fuel queues resurface in Abuja

Meanwhile, the NNPC in a statement signed by its group managing director, public affairs division, Ndu Ughamadu, the corporation has the full commitment of all downstream subsidiary companies including petroleum marketers and industry unions to cooperate in achieving zero fuel scarcity during the Yuletide period and beyond.

Ughamadu said that the ex-depot petrol price of N133.38 per litre and pump price of N143/N145 per litre had not changed.

Lengthy fuel queues were reported by motorists on Tuesday across Nigeria, including in the commercial capital Lagos, in the southwest, the northwestern city of Kaduna and the capital, Abuja, in the centre of the country.

December is here, and welcome to the petrol station queues! "We have said times without number that NNPC has sufficient products to cater for the needs of all consumers", Baru stated in the statement.

A source among the marketers stated that NNPC, being the sole importer of petrol, should be held responsible for the resurfacing of queues across the country.

Addressing the fuel scarcity resurgence on Tuesday, Baru guaranteed Nigerians that the NNPC was on top of the situation.

According to him, "NNPC treats private depot owners (DAPPMA) with priority, by giving them products while they now resell to our members at above the recommended ex-depot price".
