The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, on Sunday said refineries will resume operation for local consumption this month so as to end the lingering fuel scarcity in the country.Addressing newsmen after inspecting some petrol stations in Abuja, the Group Executive Director/ Chief Operating Officer, COO, NNPC, Downstream, Henry Ikem Obih said all the refineries were at various stages of resumption.
Obih also disclosed that NNPC had taken delivery of four vessels of refined petrol that are at various stages of distribution across the country.
“We are working extremely hard to ensure that we eliminate the queues. What we have seen today is encouraging but we are still not there. We will be there when you go into a couple of filling stations and you are able to buy fuel and drive away. Our refineries will commence refining sometime this month,” he said.
