FG Orders Increase in Supply of Petrol for Hitch-free Christmas

Kingsley Kanayo

The Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr Ibe Kachikwu, has directed relevant agencies to embark on a special supply of petroleum products to ensure country-wide availability at Christmas, The Nation is reporting.

The agencies are Pipelines and Products Marketing Company and Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency. A statement from the NNPC said the special supply intervention mechanism would entail the ramping up of additional supply via massive truck-out to guarantee product penetration to the nooks and crannies of the country.

It added that daily fuel truck out to Abuja, Kaduna, Kano, Enugu, Ibadan and Jos had been increased significantly to enhance free flow of products across the country. The NNPC is also consolidating its strategic alliance with some major depot owners and oil marketers with strong regional logistics outlay in those areas to ensure maximum infiltration of products.
