Authorities intervene to resolve petrol supply in Lagos

Titilayo Ipinloju, Abuja

The Pipeline and Products Marketing Company (PPMC), says normalcy will soon be restored in petrol supply to Lagos, south west Nigeria.

In a statement, PPMC said it needed to intervene after the leadership tussle between the mobile branch and national office of the Petroleum Tanker Drivers Union (PTD).

The issue, which also involved the management of the midstream subsidiary of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), caused a hitch in petrol supply in the state.

Meanwhile, NNPC has advised motorists not to resort to panic buying as the situation was under control adding that there was sufficient stock of products in Lagos and across the country.
