The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) on Tuesday said it had stepped up efforts to maintain stability in the supply and distribution of petroleum products nationwide, allaying fears of any fuel scarcity.

This was contained in a statement signed by Mr Ohi Alegbe, Group General Manager of the corporation in Lagos.

The NNPC said it had enough stock of petrol to service the country for 25 days at a national consumption rate of 40 million litres per day.

It also said that it had stepped up product distribution to petroleum marketers and NNPC retail outlets across the country.

The NNPC called on the public to refrain from panic buying.

The statement said the corporation had sufficient stock of petrol at its coastal depots in Port Harcourt, Warri and Calabar, besides the stock at the national strategic reserves.

That is a sign of seriousness
