The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has implored consumers of petrol not to engage in panic buying because the Corporation has enough supply to go round the country.
The NNPC Group General Manager Group Public Affairs Division, Malam Garba Deen Muhammad assured that the current petrol shortage would soon be over noting that the problem has been largely resolved in Lagos and the queues in Abuja are reducing by the day.
Panic buying according to Muhammad is what is making motorists to converge in a particular filling stations thereby creating scarcity especially in Abuja.
He said over 200 trucks laden with petrol have been supplied to Abuja and environs today Thursday 14th April 2016 and the trend will continue.
Muhammad gave the assurances that the corporation is doing everything humanly possible to ensure supply and distribution of products is not disrupted in any way.
He appealed to motorists to be orderly while waiting to buy petrol and also called on marketers not to hoard the product.
