The All Progressive Congress (APC) has said that the current scarcity of premium motor spirit (PMS) in the country is bogus.
The party said it has reached out to the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Timipre Sylva, and Group Managing Director (GMD) of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Mele Kyari, which have assured of enough supply to last the country for at least 40 days.
Meanwhile, the APC also expressed elation over the release of the Jangebe schoolgirls, praising the Buhari-led administration for showing proactiveness in dealing with the issues of abduction across the country.
The aforementioned were disclosed in two statements signed and released by the secretary, Caretaker extraordinary convention planning committee, Sen. John Akpanudoedehe in Abuja on Tuesday.
“The leadership of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is in touch with the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, H.E. Timipre Sylva, and the Group Managing Director (GMD) of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Mele Kyari over the fuel queues noticed in some parts of the country.
“We have received assurances from the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources and NNPC GMD that there is more than enough petrol to last the country for 40 days. There is no need for panic buying and we urge petroleum filling stations to resist the urge to hoard products and illegally hike prices,” one statement read.
Concerning the release of the abducted schoolgirls, the APC said “While the Party commends all stakeholders for their selfless roles in securing the release of the schoolgirls, the APC restates President Buhari’s directive to subnational entities to provide adequate security in all schools within their areas of responsibility.”
