NNPC declares 35 days fuel sufficiency with 2.1bn litres

NNPC Limited has announced that it has 2.1 billion litres of Premium Motor Spirit (petrol) in stock, which would ensure a robust supply of the product for at least 35 days.

Chief Corporate Communications Officer, NNPC Limited, Mr Garba Deen Muhammad, who made the announcement, said the 2.1 billion litres represented 0.9 billion litres in all the land depots nationwide and 1.2 billion litres on marine vessels. He said the company “plans to close the month of March 2023 with about 2.8 billion litres, which is equivalent to 47 days of sufficiency.

Muhammad said; 

“The appearance of pockets of queues in Abuja and some parts of the country is largely due to restrictions in businesses and movement, to allow for the conduct of the Presidential and NASS elections and enable Nigerians to exercise their civic rights.

‘’However, operations have now resumed at the depots and trucks are being dispatched to various parts of the country.  We expect normalcy to be restored in the next few days.

“NNPC Ltd. and all its partners and stakeholders will continue to work together to ensure seamless distribution of petroleum products around the Gubernatorial and State Assembly elections.”
