The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC has assured Nigerians of abundance of petroleum products following the suspension of the strike embarked upon by the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers, NUPENG.

Ndu Ughamadu, NNPC’s Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, gave the reassurance in a statement on Saturday.

Ughamadu said that with the suspension of strike by NUPENG, activities have resumed at depots across the country.

He further revealed that the current petroleum products stocked for supply by the corporation would be able to serve Nigerians sufficiently for the next 37 days.

The NNPC spokesman added that with the resumption in production of diesel and kerosene at the three refineries in the country, Nigerians should be rest assured that the seamless flow of petroleum products will be sustained.

Ughamadu stated that the commission is working to maintain the cordial relations between it and labour unions in the oil sector.

He advised the general public not to engage in panic buying, which could create artificial scarcity, promising that there was adequate supply of petroleum products nationwide.

He also urged stakeholders to desist from any act capable of impeding the supply and distribution of petroleum products in and around the country.
