THE PROPOSED NLC AND TUC STRIKE WONT AFFECT FUEL
The Nigerian National petroleum Corporation (NNPC) gave the assurance in a statement by its spokesman, Mr Ndu Ughamadu in Abuja today that it has adequate petroleum products that will serve the nation, irrespective of the proposed strike by the Nigerian Labour Congress.
He explained that NNPC had 39 days petroleum products sufficiency and about 25 days products availability on land. Therefore, Motorists and other consumers of petroleum products are assured of adequate stock to meet their energy needs.
Ughamadu further dismissed allusions of any impending petroleum products scarcity in the country. He advises motorists not to engage in panic buying as the corporation would do all it can 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 (DPR) 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.
