Against the backdrop of the reported long queues currently being experienced in some states of the Federation resulting from #EndSARS protests and consequent curfews in some states, the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has cautioned motorists and other Nigerians against panic buying of petrol, otherwise known as Premium Motor Spirit (PMS).

The state oil corporation has assured consumers of normalcy in the supply of petroleum products across the country.

Dr. Kennie Obateru, Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, who disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria, in Abuja, Monday, October 26 said that the long queues currently being experienced were due to the curfew imposed in some states over the #EndSARS protests.

Obateru, who stated that the curfews affected the free movement of fuel tankers involved in the supply of petroleum products, also assured of normalcy in a couple of days.

The NNPC noted: “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.

“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.”
