Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has urged Nigerians not to panic buy saying there is enough Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) also known as petrol to last for more than a week.
The Group General Manager Corporate Planning and Strategy in NNPC Mrs Oritsemeyiwa Eyesan said this at the Bureau of Public Service Reforms Seminar on the role of NNPC in current reforms in the petroleum sector.
According to Eyesan there is no truth in the speculations that there will be an increase in the price of PMS which has caused members of the public to resort to panic buying.
Eyesan explained that during the violence following the EndSARS protests Customs office was burnt and all petroleum shipments came from outside the country.
She emphasised that the protest and curfew imposed in Lagos State affected movement of PMS to other parts of the country.
She affirmed that there was enough product on ground to last the country for over a week.
In his presentation, the Director-General of Bureau of Public Service Reforms (BPSR) Dr Dasuki Arabi said that the operations of the petroleum sector would improve if the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB) was passed into law.
