NNPC asks Nigerians to report stations selling above N145 per litre

Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has asked Nigerians to report any filling station that sells Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), popularly known as petrol beyond N145 per litre to the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR).

NNPC made the plea in a statement by its spokesman Ndu Ughamadu, on Thursday in Abuja.

The NNPC spokesman advised Nigerians to provide alert the DPR, the industry regulator, or to any law enforcement agency around them, about any station which sells petrol beyond the regulated price.

He also debunked rumours of fears of insufficient supply of petroleum products in the country during the Easter period.

The NNPC spokesman explained that 23 depots in Lagos, seven in Port Harcourt in Rivers State, 11 in Warri (Delta), six in Calabar (Cross River), and eight in Kaduna, were fully stocked with white products.

Ughamadu disclosed that two vessels of 50 million litres of petrol would arrive at the shores of Nigeria every day from Friday.

He advised motorists and other petroleum products consumers not to engage in panic buying, saying there was enough products stock in 55 depots across the country.
