More Petroleum Product Trucks Arrives In Abuja And Other Locations Says NNPC Ltd

According to NNPC Limited, there is an improvement in petroleum product supply and distribution for Abuja and other places.

This was revealed by the Group Executive Director, Downstream, Nigerian National Petroleum Company Ltd, Engr Adeyemi Adetunji while addressing the media in Abuja on Wednesday.

He said that more petroleum product trucks have started arriving in Abuja and other destinations as the flood that earlier restricted the movement of vehicles along the Lokoja highway has receded.

Adetunji, further said that the Federal Ministry of Works and Housing has also intervened in the rehabilitation of 10 sections of the damaged Bida-Agaie road in Niger state.

The statement reads, “As of yesterday, 11th October 2022, 146 petroleum tanker trucks have arrived at Suleja Depot for dispatches into Abuja and environs, and trucks have continued to arrive at Suleja Depot for onward dispatches today. Product delivery to other parts of the country is also continuing with the improved vehicular movement Northwards.

“Additionally, the Nigerian Midstream and Downstream Petroleum Regulatory Authority (NMDPRA) and NNPC have allowed the rerouting of trucks carrying petroleum products from Warri/Oghara through Port Harcourt and Makurdi into Abuja and other parts of the North.

“We want to reassure the general public that NNPC has sufficient petroleum products in stock and there is no need for panic buying, as we work to ensure an early return to normalcy, the statement concluded.

Recall that fuel queues resurfaced in Abuja and neighboring states last Tuesday.
