Fuel scarcity: Nigerians suffers increase in transportation

As a result of fuel scarcity, transportation costs have risen, and many people were left stranded at bus stops.

Nigeria’s fuel shortages worsened across many cities on Tuesday, making it difficult for people to get to work or go about their daily lives. 

Because of the situation, transportation costs have risen, and many people were left stranded at various bus stations on Tuesday when employees and children returned to school. 

The state-run NNPC said in a statement on Tuesday evening that it has started 24-hour operations at its depots and retail outlets to restore regular gasoline supply and distribution across the nation.  

As of Tuesday, the company stated it has over a billion litres of safe gasoline for use in automobiles and machines, which would reduce Fuel scarcity. an

The statement went like this: “NNPC Ltd wants to reassure Nigerians that it has taken necessary steps to speed up the countrywide distribution of PMS, which was previously hampered by the quarantine of methanol-blended gasoline”. 

“The quarantine was required to protect our customers from the possible negative effects of this PMS grade on automobiles and machines”. 

“NNPC has over one billion liters of approved PMS stock that is safe to use in automobiles an machines as of today”

“To help speed up delivery across the country, we’ve started operating our Depots and Retail locations 24 hours a day, seven days a week”.  

“As part of the NNPC’s planned restocking, nearly 2.3 billion litres of PMS are slated for delivery between now and the end of February 2022, restoring sufficiency above the national objective of 30 days.” 

“The Major Oil Marketers Association of Nigeria, the Depot Owners and Petroleum Products Marketers Association of Nigeria and the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria have all begun 24-hour loading and dispensing operations at certain of their approved outlets.” 

“In addition, the NNPC’s monitoring team is working with the Authority (NMDPRA) and other security agencies to ensure that PMS is distributed smoothly across the country.” 

“NNPC advises Nigerians to avoid panic purchasing because there is enough PMS in the nation and efforts are being made to speed up distribution to all filling stations,” the company stated.
