The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPC Ltd.) started its week with the introduction of 24-hour operation for over 40 filling stations in Abuja as part of efforts to ensure the disappearance of fuel queues.
The development which ensured round-the-clock operations of these selected filling stations in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) saw the officials of the NNPC Ltd embark on several unannounced visits.
In one of such unannounced visits in the wee hours, within the week, officials of the company, led by the Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Garba Muhammad noticed a much-improved situation, with much of the queues vanished.
At the Airport Road branch of the A.A. Rano Filling Station which has over 60 pumps, only two motorists were found filling their car tanks while majority of the fuel attendants in other filling stations were waiting for customers.
A motorist who identified himself as Jika Wakili said the efforts by the NNPC authorities to restore normalcy to the fuel situation were highly commendable.
Mr Wakili urged the management of the company to sustain the tempo and ensure the situation gets even better across other locations in the country.
“The situation is easing now and we are happy with the efforts of the NNPC Management.
“This shows that the leadership of the organisation is working very hard to resolve this issue.
“They should not rest on their oars please,” Mr Wakili added.
Other motorists spoke on the improved fuel situation.
