Petrol shortage imminent in states as NNPC stops loading product


Petrol shortage may be imminent in some states as trucks have stopped loading from NNPC depots in the South-West since Monday.

A reliable source told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Thursday that PPMC, a subsidiary of NNPC, had stopped pumping petrol through its System 2B to five states in the South-West.

“The management of PPMC has not come out with cogent reasons why it is not pumping petrol to all the NNPC depots in the South-West since Monday”, the source said.
