The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) said its downstream retail subsidiary, NNPC Retail Limited, was activating fresh measures to optimise operational efficiency in the delivery of petroleum and allied products to customers across the country.
The corporation stated this in a press statement last Friday, noted that the measures would entail closer scrutiny and supervision of the operations of NNPC mega and affiliate retail outlets strategically located in major cities and towns throughout the country.
The statement signed by the Group General Manager Public Affairs, Ndu Ughamadu explained that the target is to ensure that lessons garnered from the recent fuel availability challenge are imputed into the fuel supply and distribution matrix for greater efficiency and closer scrutiny of the operations of all our retail outlets to enforce stricter compliance with the rules of engagement for the good of consumers.
Ughamadu, also disclosed that it had amicably ended its lease agreement with the owners of the Super Mega petrol station along the Abuja Airport Road, stressing that with the cessation of the agreement which took effect from Sunday 15th April, 2018, NNPC Retail and the owners of the station are concluding the hand over process in line with the terms of the amicable pact.
According to him, “While acknowledging the contribution of the station in providing products to teeming customers along the Airport Road during the trying period, the corporation assured motorists along the axis that seven other affiliate stations had been sufficiently mobilized to provide for their products consumption needs’’.
The Corporation also noted that its retail subsidiary is working assiduously to expand its footprints in Abuja and adjoining towns as recently directed by the Group Managing Director, Dr. Maikanti Baru.
