The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Ltd. (NNPC) says it will continue to work tirelessly to ensure a sufficient supply of petrol to every part of the country during and beyond the forthcoming festive period.

Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, NNPC, Mr Garba Muhammad, made this known in a statement on Tuesday in Abuja.

The NNPC expressed appreciation to Nigerians for always heeding its advisories to avoid panic buying.

“The NNPC is once again giving Nigerians strong assurance that we have product sufficiency that will last far beyond the festive period,” said the statement. “Indeed, our stock has risen from a reserve of 1.7 billion litres to over two billion litres within the last one month.”

Therefore, the national oil company urged Nigerians not to engage in panic buying but to “fully enjoy the spirit of the festive season.”

While appreciating Nigerians for their understanding and support, NNPC promised that it would not relent in always ensuring a sufficient supply of petrol.

“We wish you all happy celebrations,” added the NNPC statement.
