SAN FRANCISCO, March 25, (THEWILL) – The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has apologised to Nigerians for failing to keep up with its responsibility of ensuring that petroleum products are adequately available for use in the country.

NNPC which got the largest share of 72 per cent to import petrol in the first quarter (Q1) 2016 import allocation explained that it was working hard to restore normalcy in petrol supply across the country, promising that the huge queues of motorists will clear off within two weeks.

In a statement released on Friday, signed by its Group General Manager, Public Affairs, Mr. Garba Deen Mohammed, in Abuja, NNPC said that it feels the pains of Nigerians who have to queue for long hours at filling stations to get petrol.

“The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) wishes to empathise with the difficulties Nigerians are presently going through due to the current fuel situation and assures that the government and NNPC are not taking their patience for granted.”

It urged Nigerians to continue to be patient, adding that, “the difficulties being experienced as a result of the situation will soon be alleviated.”
