The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), in a statement said it will work with security agencies to monitor the distribution of fuel nationwide.

The corporation also hinted that the Department of State Services (DSS) and Economic and the Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC)  will be involved in the operation to curb the  hoarding and diversion of fuel.

NNPC also apologised to Nigerians for the trouble they have gone through, since the fuel scarcity started.

An excerpt of the statement obtained from Leadership Newspapers reads “Any marketer found wanting in the sale of petroleum products, including the NNPC retail outlets would be sanctioned appropriately.

“ There will be no sacred cows as the corporation is working round the clock by supplying sufficient petroleum products to marketers to ensure that Nigerians enjoyed a yuletide season without pain.

“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 (PTD) not to be involved in the diversion of petroleum products in order to avoid causing untold hardship to motorists.”

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation is the oil corporation through which the federal government of Nigeria regulates and participates in the country's petroleum industry.
