PENGASSAN Strike: NNPC assures the public of over 2.9 billion litres availability




    The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, has dismissed mounting insinuation of possible scarcity of petroleum products following ongoing disagreement between the Federal Government and members of the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association, PENGASSAN, on the implementation of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System, IPPIS.

    A release by the Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division of the Corporation,  Kennie Obateru quoted the NNPC GMD, Mele Kyari as saying, that the industrial action embarked upon by PENGASSAN would not lead to scarcity of petroleum products as all fuel stations and petrol depots in the country have enough stock of products to service consumers and are open for business.

    While expressing hope that the industrial dispute would be settled amicably, Kyari assured that the Corporation has thus far emplaced a stock of over 2.9 billion litres of petrol to guarantee seamless movement of people, goods and services across the country in the forthcoming Christmas season and beyond.

    The GMD reiterated the Corporation’s determination to make the 2020 end-of-year festivities a zero-fuel queue period just like the preceding year, noting that critical stockholders in the petroleum products supply and distribution chain such as tanker drivers, depot owners and road transport owners have been mobilized to ensure hitch-free season.
