Your Seven-Day Ultimatum To NNPC And NMDPRA Is Meaningless; Group Informs AYAD

The Integrity Youth Alliance has said that the call for the dissolution of NNPC and NMDPRA management is inconsequential considering all the efforts the GMD, Mal, Kyari, and his management team have put in place to end the fuel scarcity.

Reacting to a call by the Arewa Youth Alliance for Development (AYAD) for the dissolution of NNPC and NMDPRA management, the Board Chairman of Integrity Youth Alliance, Adewole Kehinde, said that if the group existed and not just an overnight “Youth Alliance,” then they would have rather commended the NNPC management just like an elder statesman, Alhaji Tanko Yakasai, has done.

The statement said, “It is on record that the NNPC’s 24-Hour Fuel Supply Operations has drastically reduced the long queues experienced in Abuja and its environs.

The company has commenced running 24-hour operations at its depots and fuel stations to bridge the gap in the supply chain.

“As part of NNPC’s strategic restocking, over 2.3 billion liters of PMS have been delivered as at the end of February 2022, which is already restoring a sufficiency level above the national target of 30 days.

“Releasing about 400 million liters of PMS to Nigerians weekly, with full details of beneficiaries according to the PMS Evacuation Report of the NNPC is another measure put in place to cushion the effects of the scarcity.

“The Major Oil Marketers Association of Nigeria, Depot Owners and Petroleum Products Marketers Association of Nigeria and the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria have also commenced 24-hour loading and dispensing activities in some of their designated outlets.

“Furthermore, NNPC’s monitoring team is collaborating with the authorities (NMDPRA) and other security agencies to ensure the smooth distribution of PMS nationwide.

“In as much as we support the group’s call on the anti-corruption agencies to crackdown on fueling stations selling petroleum products above the national benchmark, it is high time the so-called Arewa Youth Alliance for Development tow the part of the Northern statesman, Alhaji Tanko Yakasai, by adopting the attitude of appreciating public office holders whenever desirable, the statement concluded.
