NNPCSubsidiary of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), the Pipelines and Products Marketing Company (PPMC), has announced that it will start publishing trucks and the stations receiving fuel from Tuesday. This is in a bid to ensure effective monitoring.

Managing Director, PPMC, Mrs. Esther Nnamdi-Ogbue, during a visit to Ajebo community, Obafemi-Owode Local Government, Ogun State, where a petrol pipeline was vandalised informed newsmen of this development.

Ogbue said, “We will follow up those petrol stations receiving products. One of the things we are going to do is that from Tuesday, I believe, we are going to publish every truck leaving the depots, the station they are headed for.

“We are going to publish the phone numbers of the truck drivers and the stations so that we all monitor those trucks together. Each truck is important because what has happened in the past months or so should never be repeated and we are putting structures in place to ensure that it never happens again.”

The Managing Director assured the public that with the coming back of the refineries, there will be easy push of petroleum products to strategic storage points all around the country.

“We have major depots; we hope with our pipelines coming back, we are going to push products to those strategic storages so that in the event that there is a need for intervention, we can have tankers going to the nearest depots and loading.”
