Image result for NNPC says expecting 250million litres of PetrolThe Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation has announced that it is expecting up to five ships, each filled with 50 million litres of Premium Motor Spirit, popularly known as petrol, in the country in the next three days.

It said the move was to bridge the shortage in the volume of PMS available for supply and distribution and make the queues by motorists in many filling stations across the country to disappear.

The corporation stated that its downstream subsidiary, the Nigerian Products Marketing Company, had increased the number of trucks that move petrol from its depots to 1,300 per day in order to prevent distribution and supply hiccups.

Last week, the Federal Government directed the Minister of Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu, to ensure that queues for petrol were cleared within a week.
