Group Expresses Concern Over Petrol Scarcity Ahead Of Yuletide

(Last Updated On: 2021-11-16)


PMB Oil and Gas Progress has called on the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to sanction some petroleum marketers who are planning to create artificial petrol scarcity in the country ahead of the Yuletide,

This was disclosed yesterday in a statement signed by its National Coordinator, Mallam Sabiu Abdullahi, yesterday.

He communicated concern over alleged attempts by some petroleum marketers to hoard over 90 million litres of petrol, to be sold at exorbitant prices during the festivities.

“From available information obtained from the NNPC, efforts have been made by the appropriate agency to ensure an all-round supply of petrol across Nigeria,” he said while wondering why some persons would want to bring hardship upon their fellow countrymen and women by sabotaging the efforts of the NNPC and government at a critical time such as the end of the year.

The group called on the NNPC management not to be lenient with any marketer found guilty of creating artificial scarcity.
