The Nigeria National Petroleum Commission (NNPC) has vowed to bring an end to fuel queue across the country amid fuel scarcity.
This was contained in a statement issued earlier today by the apex oil industry as they promised abundant supply of petroleum nationwide this month, stressing that the industry has resumed full operation.
According to NNPC, the persistent fuel queue was as a result of the recently concluded general election which hindered the movement of PMS across the nation.
“The appearance of pockets of queues in Abuja and some parts of the country, is largely due to restrictions in businesses and movement, to allow for the conduct of the Presidential and NASS elections and enable Nigerians to exercise their civic right.
“However, operations have now resumed at the depots and trucks are being dispatched to various part of the country.” NNPC stated.
While eyeing a total supply of 2.8 billion litres of PMS, which is equivalent to 47 days of sufficiency, before the end of this month, the body urged citizens to desist from panic buying as they promised restoration of normalcy.
