NNPC Reveals Reason For Fuel Scarcity In Lagos State
The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has said that the current shortage of petrol being experienced in Lagos State is due to a leadership battle between a branch of the Petroleum Tanker Drivers (PTD) union and the national leadership of the union.
This was contained in a statement released by NNPC spokesperson, Ohi Alegbe on Wednesday, February 17, 2016.
The Pipeline and Products Marketing Company (PPMC), a subsidiary of the NNPC, has however assured that the issue would soon be resolved due to its intervention in the disagreement.
The PPMC also said that there is sufficient fuel in Lagos and across the country adding that motorists should not resort to panic buying.
