The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) says it has increased the daily supply of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), also known as gasoline across the country, from 550 trucks to 1,661 trucks.
The company revealed this in a statement issued Tuesday by the group’s managing director, group’s public affairs division, Dr Kennie Obateru, in Abuja.
Obateru said the goal was to tackle fuel queues in parts of the country.
He said the supply would keep the country healthy for two months if no drop of fuel was imported during that time.
“We have embarked on a massive load. Today we have transported 1,661 trucks from all depots across the country.
“Reports reaching us show that they have already started arriving at gas stations. We think it would ease the queues, ”he said.
Lawan revealed that a 24-hour Situation Watch Committee has been set up to track truck movements from depots to various gas stations across the country.
He said the queues would decrease in the coming days.
The PPMC boss explained that the disruption in the distribution chain was caused by the strike launched by the oil tanker drivers (PTD) over compensation.
He assured the public that with the suspension of the strike, normalcy would soon return to gas stations.
It is recalled that the intervention of the company on Monday led to the suspension of the strike by the PTD for a week. (NOPE)
