After receiving a DSS ultimatum, NNPCL releases 1.9 billion litres of PMS


The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation Limited, NNPCL, has released 1.9 billion liters of gasoline just a day after the Department of State Services, DSS, gave players in the oil and gas business a 48-hour ultimatum.

The NNPCL, oil merchants, and other parties had been given a 48-hour deadline by the DSS to make PMS, also known as petrol, available to Nigerians.

This information was provided in a briefing on Thursday by Dr. Peter Afunanya, the secret service spokesperson.

The NNPC Group Chief Executive Officer, Mallam Mele Kyari, later declared in response to the ultimatum that the firm was determined to release the 1.9 billion liters of fuel.

Kyari informed Nigerians of the availability of Premium Motor Spirit, or PMS, through NNPC Chief Financial Officer Umar Ajiya.

In order to provide immediate comfort to the populace, he added, “We have also directed operation team to engage in 24hours loading of PMS in the next couple of days and make sure some shops function 24hours without sacrificing security.”

The Nigerian Midstream and Downstream Petroleum Regulatory Authority’s Chief Executive, Engr. Farouk Ahmed promised to work with the NNPC and all stakeholders to ensure that problems with the supply of petroleum products are properly addressed and that access is unhindered.

The Nigerian Association of Road Transport Owners (NARTO), the Depots and Petroleum Products Marketers Association of Nigeria (DAPPMAN), the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN), and the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) all reaffirmed their commitment to ending the shortage.
