NLC STRIKE: Don’t Stockpile Petrol, NNPC Warns
The organised labour may embark on an indefinite strike on Tuesday over minimum wage demands.
As a result some people have embarked on panic buying of food stock and even petroleum products.
But the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC is saying there is no need for that.
The corporation dispelled insinuations of any impending petroleum products scarcity in the country because of the strike.
In a statement release on Sunday in Abuja by the NNPC Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs, Ndu Ughamadu, the corporation has 39 days petroleum products sufficiency and about 25 days products availability on land.
He said motorists and other consumers of petroleum products are assured of adequate stock to meet their energy needs.
The NNPC spokesperson said providing information on the petroleum products stock level became necessary to dispel suggestions that the threat of strike action by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) would result in long queues.
Ughamadu advised motorists not to engage in panic buying as the corporation would do all it can to ensure the strike action does not impact negatively on fuel distribution.
He stated that Nigerians should remain vigilant and volunteer information to the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR), the Industry regulator or to any law enforcement agency around them, on any station that attempts to take advantage of any prevailing situation.
