Fuel scarcity: NNPC releases 470 trucks to Lagos, Abuja

Published

on

The lingering fuel crisis in the country yesterday forced the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to release 470 trucks-load of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) also known as petrol to Lagos and Abuja.

New Telegraph’s survey showed a meagre improvement in the fuel supply situation, even as the NNPC and Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) rolled out measures to stop the crisis from extending to Christmas.

While the DPR threatened to shut stations and sell fuel of hoarders and profiteers free-of-charge, the NNPC flaunted 750 million litres of petrol availability, maintaining that the panic buying was unnecessary.
