There is a sign of relief from petrol hardship in the country as the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) makes a promising move toward making the essential commodity available across the Nation.
Group General Manager, Public Affairs of the NNPC, Mr Garba Muhammad, in a statement made available, said five vessels belonging to the NNPC and other oil marketers had started discharging at various depots and jetties across Nigeria.
Garba further disclosed that a total of 1,194 trucks were loaded nationwide with Lagos receiving 467 trucks while Abuja received 141 trucks, the corporation said.
While urging Nigerians not to engage in panic buying, the NNPC promised to give daily breakdown of product supplied to Nigerians until the situation fades away completely.
Though the Minister of Petroleum said the scarcity would ease by the second week of April at petrol service stations across Nigeria, the queue for fuel had become longer.
