Queues at fuel stations across the country would ease-off soon, it appeared in the horizon on Wednesday with the commencement of daily production of 3.2 million litres of petrol by the Kaduna Refining and Petrochemical Company, KRPC.
A statement by the NNPC confirmed that the plant which commenced production over the weekend with an initial PMS yield of about 1.5 million litres has ramped up its daily yield to 3.2 million litres.
“The injection of this volume into the system will significantly impact ongoing special intervention efforts designed to bring relief to motorists across the country,” the Corporation stated.
“I hope Nigerians can have the spirit of orderliness, the spirit of cohesion and the spirit of responsibility in order to help this process,” he observed.
Dr. Kachikwu assured that there was sufficient petrol for Nigerians and again appealed to motorists to desist from panic purchases and warned that unscrupulous marketers who either hoard or divert products would henceforth be treated as economic saboteurs.
