Abuja, Nigeria – The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPC), has said the cause of the current fuel scarcity is due to road rehabilitation works going on in some part of Lagos State.

While addressing a press conference in Abuja on Tuesday, NNPC’s Executive Vice President, Downstream, Mr. Adeyemi Adetunju said ‘’The recent queues in Lagos are largely due to ongoing road infrastructure projects around Apapa and access road challenges in some parts of the state’s depots.

The gridlock is easing out and NNPC has programmed vessels and trucks to unconstrained depots and massive load outs from depots to various states are closely being monitored.

Abuja is impacted by the challenges recorded in Lagos. NNPC retail and key marketers have intensified dedicated loading into Abuja to restore normalcy as soon as possible.”

Adetunju, however assured Nigerians that efforts are ongoing to ensure that normalcy returns as soon as possible.

“We want to reassure all Nigerians that NNPC has sufficient products, and we significantly increased product loading, including 24-hour operations in selected depots and extended hours at strategic stations to ensure products sufficiency nationwide.’’
