NNPC lauds tanker drivers for seamless distribution of petrol
The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) yesterday disclosed that the country has sufficient petroleum products thanking the Petroleum Tanker Drivers (PTD) for their sacrifice in ferrying petroleum products across the country.
The Corporation’s Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Kennie Obateru, has said the tanker drivers’ selfless service during the lockdown has ensured smooth distribution of petroleum products during this period. Managing Director of NNPC Retail Ltd, Billy Okoye, also disclosed that all NNPC Retail Ltd’s filling stations, numbering over 600 across the country, are to remain operational throughout the period of the lockdown to meet the energy needs of Nigerians.
According to him, NNPC retail products are daily being trucked to stations strategically located across Nigeria, urging consumers not to engage in panic buying.
He thanked the various state governors for allowing petroleum tankers to crisscross their states despite the movement restriction order and commended the security agencies, Petroleum Tanker Drivers (PTD), Nigerian Association of Road Transport Owners (NARTO), National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) and all other service providers in the Downstream value chain for their support.
