The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) on Wednesday apologized to Nigerians over the fuel scarcity situation in the country.
According to Vanguard, the organisation also revealed that it has entered into a partnership with security agencies in the country to assist in the monitoring of fuel supply across the country.
A representative from NNPC told newsmen, “We must all make sure that petroleum products get across to Nigerians at the regulated price especially as the yuletide season approaches. We have enough products and we want to plead with the Petroleum Tanker Drivers (PTDs) not to be involved in the diversion of petroleum products in order to avoid causing untold hardship to motorists.”
Managing Director of the Pipelines and Products Marketing Company, Esther Nnamdi-Ogbue also revealed, “We have invited the EFCC and DSS to join us in this campaign of monitoring the movement of petroleum products and they have our mandate to sanction any errant marketer. Enough is enough.”
