The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria has revealed that the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has flooded the Ejigbo depot with Premium Motor Spirit.
According to them, the long queues at filling stations occasioned by the #Fuelscarcity will soon disappear with the development.
Chairman of the Lagos Chapter of IPMAN Alanamu Balogun in a statement on Sunday said the NNPC had responded to the oil marketers’ complaint about shortage of petrol supply to them.
“Before the fuel crisis, the NNPC was supplying our members only six trucks daily, but since about five days now, the corporation has increased the supply to 80 trucks per day and promised to increase the supply,” he said.
“Our members and the NNPC staff are now working 24 hours daily to ensure that fuel circulates all over Lagos and Ogun State regularly.
“The NNPC has repaired all the existing facilities at Ejigbo satellite depot to enhance fuel supply to the public. The situation now is that the fuel scarcity in Lagos and Ogun state will end within the next few days.
“Members of the public are advised to stop panic buying of fuel and storing petroleum products in their homes which could cause fire disaster.
“The NNPC has promised to repair all its facilities in Ilorin, Ibadan and Ore depots to ensure regular fuel supply nationwide.”
