NNPC Advises Motorists Not To Panic Buy Amidst Fuel Hike Rumors

BoomRadioNG | November 9, 2021

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has advised the public not to engage in panic buying of Premium Motor Spirit, commonly known as petrol.

The NNPC said it was also not aware of any plan by the government to cause an increase in the pump price of petroleum.

A statement on Monday by Garba Muhammad, Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, NNPC, in Abuja, said that the NNPC had over 1.7 billion liters of petrol in stock adding that more of the product is expected to arrive into the country daily over the coming weeks and months.

 

He said it was therefore unnecessary to entertain any fear of scarcity of petrol throughout the festive season and beyond.

“The NNPC is also not aware of any plan by the government to cause an increase in the pump price of petroleum. The Nigerian Midstream and Downstream Petroleum Regulatory Authority (NMDPRA) made that declaration last week.

“In view of these assurances therefore, the NNPC is advising motorists and other consumers of petrol to maintain their regular pattern of the purchase of petrol without getting into a panic situation that may send the wrong signals around the country.”
