Fuel scarcity


The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) says there are no plans to increase the prices of petroleum products this yuletide season.

This was contained in a statement by the group general manager, public affairs division, Ndu Ughamadu on Monday, December 4, 2017.

Ughamadu noted that the ex-depot petrol price of N133.38 per litre and the pump price of N143/N145 per litre remains same.

The NNPC also assured Nigerians that the corporation has enough stock of fuel to ensure seamless supply and distribution of products across the country.

The corporation expressed the commitment of all downstream stakeholders including petroleum marketers and industry unions to cooperate in achieving zero fuel scarcity this season and beyond.
