PPMC takes extra measures to end current fuel scarcity

In response to the current fuel scarcity, the management of the
Petroleum Products Marketing Company on Friday said it has
flooded Abuja with 31 high capacity trucks, each with
approximately 60,000 litres.
Another 25 trucks are expected Saturday, the company said in a
statement, explaining that the measure was in line with the efforts
being made by the Minister of State for Petroleum, Ibe Kachikwu,
to end the scarcity.
According to the PPMC, the 31 intervention trucks that arrived
Abuja Friday were deployed to areas of need.
“This is made possible by reason of the partnership between
NNPC Retail and Capital Oil and Gas,” the company said. “In
addition, 150 trucks have been provided by A. A. Rano, Azman,
and Rahamaniyya.”
The Managing Director of PPMC, Esther Nnamdi-Ogbue, said these
interventionist efforts would continue until the queues at filling
stations disappear.
The agency said despite not being a regulator, “it has made an
extra effort to curb the effect of the fuel crisis on the general public
by deploying staff to petrol stations across Abuja for round-the-
clock monitoring.
“It is believed that with these measures, normalcy will return to
Abuja and its environs in no time. Motorists are therefore advised
for the umpteenth time not to engage in panic buying as this will
encourage the activities of hoarders.
“They are also advised to be vigilant and to report any observed
sharp practices and other identified areas of need.”
The PPMC urges citizens to report sharp practices observed at
filling stations through its twitter account, @PPMC_NGR.
