ABUJA-Following an ultimatum issued by the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG), the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), has allayed fears of possible hiccups in petroleum products supply in parts of the country.
The Sight News gathered that the ultimatum was issued over a purported intervention by an arm of the security agencies in what the union viewed as purely labour matters involving a company and its workers in Delta State.
Meanwhile, the NNPC Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Mr. Ndu Ughamadu, in a statement on Friday in Abuja, said the Corporation’s Group Managing Director, Dr. Maikanti Baru and his Management team, were engaging the parties involved, saying the parties are close to resolving the issues.
Mr. Ughamadu, advised motorists and other consumers of petroleum products, not to engage in panic buying as the NNPC Management was close to reaching an amicable resolution of the challenge.
NNPC assured, that the corporation had adequate storage of petroleum products across the country, advising the general public not entertain any fear of petroleum shortages.
