Mele Kyari “The Group managing director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), assured Nigerians that the current fuel queues in major cities across the country will soon disappear.

He also explained that the queues have nothing to do with scarcity of fuel, but a consequence of an industrial action embarked upon by tanker drivers over their condition of service.

A statement by the group general manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Dr Kennie Obateru, quoted the managing director of the Petroleum Products Marketing Company (PPMC), Mr Musa Lawan, as saying that there are about two billion litres of PMS in strategic depots across the country to keep the nation well supplied for two months if no drop of fuel was imported in that period.

“As I speak to you at this moment, loading has commenced in all depots in the country, dispatches of trucks are ongoing in all the depots in the country and they have called off the strike for a period of one week to enable us intervene and find a solution. So there’s really nothing fundamental that is happening now.”
