‘Lagos pipeline explosion won’t affect fuel supply’
Baru, in a statement by NNPC’s Group General Manager, Public Affairs, Ndu Ughamadu, said the Nigerian Pipeline and Storage Company (NPSC), an autonomous business unit of the corporation, would carry out a full investigation of the incident and undertake immediate repairs of the affected part of the vandalised pipeline.
He insisted that strategies to ensure that the unfortunate incident would not undermine products’ supply during the festive period had been put in place.
Baru, who disclosed that NNPC had enough stock of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), otherwise called petrol, and other products, said the company’s petrol stock would last about 45 days even in the absence of fresh supply.
He therefore, advised members of the public not to engage in panic-buying.
The group also commiserated with families of the victims of the fire incident, admonishing that Nigerians should keep away from the corporation’s pipelines.
