The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), has attributed the cause of the ongoing fuel scarcity in Lagos and its environs to distribution challenges.
Mr Feldelis Pepple, acting Group General Manager, Public Affairs Division of the Corporation disclosed this in Lagos on Sunday in a telephone interview.
Pepple said that the country had sufficient petroleum products but had distribution challenges in getting them across to other states.
He said that the just vandalised system 2B Network at Arepo also contributed to the challenges.
“We have sufficient products, but we are having distribution challenges in getting the product to other states and to the final destination of selling.
“The just vandalised system 2B also contributes to the distribution challenges, which makes it difficult to pump products through the network to other states,’’ he said. (NAN)
