Your 7-Day Ultimatum To Kyari Is Illogical; Group Tells CAACASVI
The Integrity Youth Alliance has said that the ultimatum given to the Group Managing Director of the Nigeria National Petroleum Company Limited is baseless considering all the efforts Kyari and his management team have put in place to end the fuel scarcity.
Responding to a call by a group known as the Citizens Awareness Against Corruption and Social Vices Initiative (CAACASVI), the National Coordinator of Integrity Youth Alliance, Kelvin Adegbenga said that if the group existed, they would have rather commended the NNPC Management for undertaking the following steps:
- The availability of over 1 billion litres of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) in stock for use in vehicles and machinery. This was disclosed by the Executive Director, Downstream, of the Company, Engineer Yemi Adetunji, at a press briefing in Abuja on Tuesday, February 15, 2022.
- Over 2.3 billion litres of PMS arrived in Nigeria at the end of February.
- NNPC is currently running 24-hour operations at its depots and fuel stations to bridge the gap in the supply chain.
- NNPC held a regular meeting with the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG), Petrol Tanker Drivers (PTD), Depot and Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (DAPMAN) and Major Oil Marketers Association of Nigeria (MOMAN) to find a lasting solution to the scarcity.
- Weekly distribution of 385.59 million litres to the top 20 high loading depots, which include Pinnacle-Lekki, which evacuated the highest volume of 70.8 million litres; NIPCO (22.6 million litres), AITEO (22.3 million litres); Swift (16 million litres), 11 PLC (15.9 million litres), Bovas Bulk (15 million litres) and Frado (14.6 million litres). Others are Keonamex (13.7 million litres), MRS Ltd (11.9 million litres), Rainoil (11.6 million litres), AYM Shafa (11.2 million litres), TSL (11.2 million litres), Rainoil Lagos (11.2 million litres), and Matrix (10 million litres), Conoil Lagos (9.7 million litres), AA Rano (8.8 million litres), Bluefin (8.4 million litres), HOGL (8.2 million litres), Ibafon Calabar (8 million litres) and Mainland (7.5 million litres).
“With the above among other measures put in place by the NNPC Limited, the Citizens Awareness Against Corruption and Social Vices Initiative (CAACASVI) should have channeled their 7-Day Ultimatum to the marketers to tell Nigerians what happened to the 55.4 million litres of fuel supplied to them daily, the statement said.
“We challenged the so-called the Citizens Awareness Against Corruption and Social Vices Initiative (CAACASVI) to show evidence registration with the Corporate Affairs Commission and past activities to justify their illogical ultimatum, the statement concluded.
