The Nigerian National Petroleum Company, NNPC, Limited has, again, given reasons why long queues resurfaced in the Federal Capital Territory of Abuja,  blaming it on the low load outs at depots which, it said, usually occurs during long public holidays.

It said another contributing factor could also not be far from the increase in fuel purchase which it described as usual with returning residents of the Federal Capital Territory,  FCT, from the public holidays.

NNPC said it has, however, in conjunction with the Nigerian Midstream and Downstream Petroleum Regulatory Authority and their marketing partners, taken necessary measures to ramp up load outs from all depots, saying this would, no doubt, return normalcy to the situation.

Most filling stations in Abuja were shut down following scarcity of Premium Motor Spirit, PMS, at the weekend, with the situation causing long queues of vehicles at various filling stations in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Abuja.

This comes with concerned stakeholders calling on all relevant authorities to maintain peace and order at filling stations and curb black marketing spots.
