NMDPRA gives reason for long queues at Abuja filling stations

The Nigerian Midstream and Downstream Petroleum Regulatory Authority is providing this advisory on the current queues at fuel stations in Abuja.
The Authority, in a statement, wishes to state that the fuel queues are caused by
unprecedented flooding in Lokoja, Kogi State, which has submerged a greater part of the city and grounded all vehicular movements. This unfortunately has affected the distribution of petroleum products to the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja and environs.
As part of measures to mitigate the situation, trucking via alternative routes is currently ongoing. The Authority assures the public that there are sufficient petroleum products inland.
Consequently, the general public is advised to avoid panic buying at fuel stations as the NMDPRA is working assiduously with relevant stakeholders and Government agencies to ensure product availability across the country. In the
same context, Marketers are advised to desist from hoarding the product so as not to inflict hardship on Nigerians.
The Authority wishes to reiterate its commitment to Nigerians to ensure seamless supply and distribution of Petroleum Products nationwide.
