Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation NNPC has cautioned motorists not to engage in panic buying of petrol, assuring of normalcy in the supply of the products.
The Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Mr Kennie Obateru, said on Monday in Abuja, that the long queues currently being experienced were due to the curfew imposed in some states over the #EndSARS protests.
Mr Kennie Obateru explained that the disruptions and curtailment of free flow of vehicular movement occasioned by the EndSARS protests, the attendant curfews, restrictions and vandalism affect the supply situation.
According to him, normalcy is expected to return to the petroleum products supply chain in the next couple of days.
“There is no need for panic buying, be rest assured that supply will soon return to the entire country,” he added.
