The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has assured Nigerians that there will not be scarcity of petroleum products, despite workers’ insistence on proceeding on a nationwide strike from November 6.
NNPC’s spokesperson, Ndu Ughamadu, stated this in a statement issued on Sunday.
Ughamadu assured that the corporation has a stock of petroleum products to sustain a minimum of 39 days sufficiency and about 25 days availability on land.
“The corporation had 39 days petroleum products sufficiency and about 25 days products availability on land.
“Motorists and other consumers of petroleum products are assured of adequate stock to meet their energy needs,” he said.
Rumours of possible fuel scarcity as a result of the strike began when oil unions pledged to join the strike.
The Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) and the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) had both declared their readiness to withdraw their services in compliance with the directive of the central labour movement.
