The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Ltd. (NNPC) says it will continue to provide fuel to all parts of the country during and beyond the coming festive season.
Mr Garba Muhammad, Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, NNPC said this in a statement in Abuja on Tuesday.
The NNPC appreciated Nigerians for their adherence to its advisories against panic buying.
“The NNPC is once again giving Nigerians strong assurance that we have product sufficiency that will last far beyond the festive period,” said the statement. “Indeed, our stock has risen from a reserve of 1.7 billion litres to over two billion litres within the last one month.”
The NNPC, therefore, urged Nigerians not to engage in panic buying but to “fully enjoy the spirit of the festive season.”
The NNPC also promised that it would strive to always ensure a sufficient supply of petrol while appreciating Nigerians for their understanding and support.
“We wish you all happy celebrations,” added the NNPC statement.
