Fuel scarcity hits Northern States, NNPC supplies 10 million litres daily


The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, on Wednesday announced that it has taken steps to eliminate the noticeable fuel queues in some major cities in the Northern axis.

The Corporation in a release stated that within the last 48 hours, petrol products to most major cities across the country especially in the Northern part of the country has been increased considerably to accommodate some noticeable shock in the system as a result of the growing panic demand for petroleum products.

“We can confirm that an additional daily supply of 306 trucks of PMS which is the equivalent of over 10 million litres of petrol has been injected to provide extra daily supply to Kano, Minna, Suleja/Abuja, Gusau, Katsina as well as Kaduna,’’ the NNPC stated.
