Why there are fuel queues in Abuja—NNPC



The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) yesterday explained that the queues that resurfaced in Abuja petrol stations were the ripple effects of the strike that oil workers under the umbrella of Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) embarked upon before it suspended on Tuesday.

It however advised customers to desist from panic buying of petroleum products as it has stock that could last for 30 days.

Its Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Malam Garba Deen, who made this known in a statement, noted that “as a result, all PENGASSAN members have since resumed work on Wednesday, 13th July, 2016.

“Therefore any perceived or visible shortage of petrol is only a ripple effect of the period when the strike was in progress and does not represent a shortage in supply.

Members of the public are advised not to engage in panic buying as there is no shortage of petrol.
