Nigeria orders 2.1 billion litres of emergency fuel while NNPC orders filling stations to operate 24*7 to end this mayhem   

17 Feb 2022: All the long queues for fuel is supposedly coming to and end according to the state-owned energy company — the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC)— who has made a promise to end the problem in a few days.

While appearing before a house committee on petroleum in Abuja yesterday, the Managing Director of the NNPC, Mele Kyari, disclosed that orders for more than 2.1 billion litres of methanol-free Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) have been placed and would arrive the country soon.

Apart from ordering emergency fuel they have directed filling stations to operate 24-hours in order to end queues. They also plan to distribute 1 billion litres of PMS which it currently has in stock

The distribution exercise would happen round the clock until all the affected filling stations until enough fuel has been loaded to end this chaos."In order to accelerate distribution across the country, we have commenced 24-hour operations at our depots and retail outlets... As of today, NNPC has over one billion litres of certified PMS (petrol) stock that is safe for use in vehicles and machineries," the company said.

"As part of NNPC's strategic restocking, over 2.3 billion litres of PMS (petrol) is scheduled for delivery between now and end of February 2022 which will restore sufficiency level above the national target of 30 days," the NNPC said.
