The Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation says it has begun loading of trucks at all depots to clear current scarcity being experienced across the nation.


The NNPC Group Managing Director, Mele Kyari who revealed this to newsmen after meeting with the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) and Petrol Tanker Drivers (PTD), noted that there was availability of 1.7 billion litres of petrol currently in stock.


Kyari, who believes the additional fuel would end the persistent queues which has continued in different parts of the country, with fewer stations dispensing the product, added that neither the Federal Government nor the NNPC had any plan to raise the pump price of petrol.


He also appealed to marketers not to sell petrol above the price approved by the government, stressing that the NNPC would carry out necessary sanctions allowed by law on any defaulting depot owner.


Kyari however, apologized to Nigerians for the pains experienced at fuel stations and appealed to consumers to buy only the quantity they needed at fuel stations.
