Labour Strike: NNPC Cautions Against Panic-Buying of Petrol

The Nigerian National petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has assured motorists that it has adequate petroleum products that will serve the nation, irrespective of the proposed strike by the Nigerian Labour Congress.

The NNPC gave the assurance in a statement by its spokesman, Mr NduUghamadu in Abuja on Sunday.

“The corporation had 39 days petroleum products sufficiency and about 25 days products availability on land.

“Motorists and other consumers of petroleum products are assured of adequate stock to meet their energy needs,” he said.

Ughamadu further dispelled insinuations of any impending petroleum products scarcity in the country, saying the threat of strike by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) would not result in a slip into a round of products shortages across the country.

He advised motorists not to engage in panic buying as the corporation would do all it could to ensure the strike did not impact negatively on fuel distribution nationwide.

The corporation’s spokesman urged Nigerians to remain vigilant and volunteer information to the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) or any law enforcement agency around them, on any station that attempts to take advantage of any prevailing situation in the country at the expense of the consumers.
