The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) yesterday said the Kaduna Refining and Petrochemical Company (KRPC) has started daily production of 3.2 million litres of petrol.
Its Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Ohi Alegbe, in a statement, said hopefully, the long queues at fuel stations across the country would vanish soon.
The statement confirmed that the plant which commenced production over the weekend with an initial petrol yield of about 1.5 million litres has ramped up 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,” NNPC said.
Meanwhile, less than 48 hours after the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, ordered NNPC workers to intervene in the monitoring of fuel distribution and retail at filling stations across the country, the initiative has started yielding positive results in Abuja and its environs.
