The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has stated that its mega stations nationwide will begin a 24-hour sale of petroleum products to quell scarcity.
Ohi Alegbe, group general manager public affairs division of NNPC, said the corporation had enough volume of petrol in stock to satisfy the nation’s domestic consumption requirement.
According to Justine Ezeala, the executive director (commercial) of the Pipeline and Products Marketing Company (PPMC), N1.4bn litres of petrol was available for distribution to fuel stations across the country for November alone.
He also revealed that most of the 37 NNPC retail mega stations across the country had been directed to commence 24-hour service.
“NNPC Retail has 513 retail outlets all over the country and the strategy is that every one of these stations is designed to have products at all times,” he said.
Oladipo Fagbola, a managing director, said in addition to the commencement of the 24-hour service, the state-owned oil firm had opened up some hotlines to enable members of the public provide useful feedback and intelligence on the operations of mega and affiliate filling stations across the country.
The hotlines are 08057008021, 08052195801 and 08100941174.
