The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) said it has put mechanisms in place to ensure steady supply and distribution of petroleum products as the year gradually drawing to end.
The move is to avert the usual scarcity that occur during festive periods in the country. The corporation also said it has in stock 37 days fuel sufficiency currently aside from strategies that have been put in place to ensure that Nigerians experience a hitch-free festive period Meanwhile, the corporation has warned that as the dry season draws near in the country, petroleum products consumers across the nation should be guided against mishandling of the product.

NNPC’s group general manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Mr. Ndu Ughamadu, in a release yesterday in Abuja, stated that experience had shown that commuters stock petroleum products at home or move about with them in their vehicles’ boot at this period of the year, exposing themselves and others to serious danger.
Ughamadu said the incidents involving a car laden with fuel which burst into flames while in motion last week at Umuode community, Osisioma Ngwa local government area of Abia State, exemplified the danger of transporting inflammable petroleum products in vehicles not made for that purpose.

The corporation’s spokesman admonished communities hosting NNPC’s facilities to refrain from taping products from NNPC’s pipelines or engaging in activities that may lead to spill of petroleum products.
He encouraged communities in NNPC’s areas of operations to report suspicious movements around the corporation’s facilities to law enforcement agencies, adding that observing basic safety rules of keeping away from areas where inflammable petroleum products spills had occurred could save lives and property.
