The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPC) has asked Nigerians not to panic over fuel scarcity as there are over 1.7 billion litres of petrol in stock.

In the statement signed by the NNPC spokesman Garba Deen Muhammad, the national oil company said it was unnecessary to entertain any fear of scarcity of petrol throughout the festive season and beyond.

“The general public is hereby advised not to engage in panic buying of Premium Motor Spirit, more commonly known as petrol.

“The NNPC has over 1.7 billion litres of petrol in stock and more product is expected to arrive into the country daily over the coming weeks and months”, the national oil company said in a statement on Monday“.

The statement said the NNPC was also not aware of any plan by government to cause an increase in the pump price of petroleum.

The Nigerian Midstream and Downstream Petroleum Regulatory Authority (NMDPRA) has made that declaration last week, it added.

It said: “In view of these assurances therefore, the NNPC is advising motorists and other consumers of petrol to maintain their regular pattern of the purchase of petrol without getting into a panic situation that may send the wrong signals around the country.

“The NNPC is also engaging all stakeholders to ensure smooth supply and distribution of products to every part of the country during the festive season and beyond.”
