Petroleum marketers have announced that the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL) has initiated the opening of its reserves nationwide to alleviate the ongoing fuel scarcity.

This revelation was made separately by the National President of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria, Hammed Fashola, and the Petroleum Products Retail Outlets Owners Association of Nigeria, Billy Hilly-Harry, in statements following their meeting with NNPCL on Saturday.

Fashola stated that his members would convene on Monday to collaborate with NNPCL in resolving the fuel scarcity issue, while also advising Nigerians against panic buying as fuel availability is assured across the country.

“We are officially meeting with other marketers on Monday. We are working closely with NNPC.

“The Monday meeting is for our National Executive Council. After the meeting, we will reach out to the NNPC. We talk with them every day.

“The meetings we have been having with the NNPC are in collaboration, which we have been doing.

“If you notice, yesterday (Friday), NNPC opened up their reserves in all the depots throughout the federation. We are working with them to ensure that everywhere is wet so this thing (scarcity) can disappear,” he said.

On his part, Hilly-Harry said the meeting between NNPLC and marketers had helped present a solution to the fuel scarcity.

According to him, queues have started easing off in Abuja during the weekend.

“The good news is that this is a new reality. It will bring better solutions because the result will be fantastic when you have NNPCL doing what they must do, and we also do what we must do.

“If you go to Abuja today (Saturday), you will see that the queues have eased off”, he stated.
