NNPC Speaks on Fuel Scarcity as Nigerians Panic Over Nationwide Strike

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) on Tuesday allayed fears of petrol scarcity.

Nigerians are stocking up amid the nationwide strike by the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association (PENGASSAN).

The oil workers and the federal government are at loggerheads over implementation of the Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS).

Kennie Obateru, NNPC spokesman, in a statement, assured that the industrial action would not lead to non-availability of petroleum products at fuel stations and depots.

He quoted the Group Managing Director, Mele Kyari, as saying over 2.9 billion litres of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) are in stock.
