Workers’ strike: No need for panic buying of petrol –NNPC


The Nigerian National petroleum Corporation has assured motorists that it has adequate petroleum products that will serve the nation , irrespective of the proposed strike by the Nigerian Labour Congress .

The Corporation gave the assurance in a statement by its spokesman , Mr . Ndu Ughamadu in Abuja on Sunday .

“ The corporation had 39 days petroleum products sufficiency and about 25 days products availability on land
“ Motorists and other consumers of petroleum products are assured of adequate stock to meet their energy needs, ’’ he said .
Ughamadu further dispelled insinuations of any impending petroleum products scarcity in the country .

He said that providing information on the petroleum products stock level became imperative to dispel suggestions that the threat of strike by the Nigeria Labour Congress would result in a slip into a round of products shortages across the country .

Ughamadu advised motorists not to engage in panic buying as the corporation would do all it could to ensure the strike did not impact negatively on fuel distribution nationwide .

He urged Nigerians to remain vigilant and volunteer information to the Department of Petroleum Resources or any law enforcement agency around them , on any station that attempts to take advantage of any prevailing situation in the country at the expense of the consumers .
