The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has assured Nigerians of the availability of petroleum products during the yuletide season and beyond.
The assurance was given by its Group Managing Director (GMD), Maikanti Baru, on Thursday, in Ogun state.
He said Nigeria consumes about 35 million litres of the product per day and over a billion litres of petroleum is currently available in Nigeria.
Baru said: “We are prepared and we have sufficient products that will last us through the end of the year and into next year. Our average consumption is about 35 million litres per day and at the moment we have well over a billion litres of petroleum products in my tanks.”
The NNPC boss called on motorists to be cautious and not save petroleum products in jerry cans as there is no cause for alarm or panic buying.
