FUEL QUEUES: NNPC ACCUSES MARKETERS OF SABOTAGE
« on: April 07, 2009, 04:06:03 PM »
The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has blamed marketers for the recent queues in filling stations in Abuja and its environs in the last three days.

In an interview with Daily Trust Yesterday in his office, Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, NNPC, Dr Levi Ajuonuma said ?there is no reason whatsoever for such build up of queues as the market is robust and adequately supplied with Premium Motor Sprit (PMS-Petrol)?.

He said it was discovered that the marketers dispense fuel using just one or two pump heads thereby creating the current hardship in obtaining fuel. 

He said as from last Saturday the NNPC  had increased supply to Abuja and environs from 100 to 130 trucks in order to ease the situation but the marketers are still hoarding or diverting fuel for reasons best known to them.

?Our tour of the stations within Abuja metropolis reveals that the marketers are deliberately strangulating the market as most of them are not selling while those selling are selling on only one pump?, said Ajuonuma.

He said investigation conducted by the Corporation showed that several trucks were found parked at the stations but not discharging.

He warned that any marketer who was found to have run foul of the regulation, ?we therefore wish to appeal to those marketers to immediately commence full sale of products already received from NNPC?

He called on the general public to desist from panic buying as adequate measures have been put in place to ensure that normalcy is restored.

 When contacted a public affairs manager in Total downstream who pleaded anonymity said they are not aware of any fuel queues and no body inform them of that from Abuja.

He said the total operations are open to everyone and no reasons for hoarding products at this moment. 

When our reporter went round some of the filling stations in Abuja he noticed that most of the filling stations have enough PMS with some trucks full with products parked.

None of the station mangers was willing to speak to our reporter as at yesterday on the issue.

But Daily Trust learnt that the marketers are hoarding the fuel in anticipation of the high demand during the Easter holidays.

It's a shame, fuel scarcity in an oil producing nation like Nigeria.
