New NNPC Lugbe mega station shut as NNPC ends deal with owner

The new NNPC-branded petrol station located along the Abuja Airport road which started operation barely three months ago has remained under lock and keys since Sunday.

Motorists who thronged the usually busy station early Monday queued briefly but on noticing the outlet didn’t show any sign product would be dispensed, drove off disappointingly.

The station had remained shut until yesterday when NNPC in a statement by its spokesman Ndu Ughamadu announced that it had amicably ended its lease agreement with the owners of the Super Mega Petrol station along the Abuja Airport Road.

NNPC said 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.

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.

It however did not give any reasons for the cessation of the agreement. Only last week, the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) sealed for four months a petrol station affiliated to the NNPC located at Wuse 2, Abuja for under-dispensing petrol to the general public.
 


The NNPC in the statement said its downstream retail subsidiary, NNPC Retail Limited, was activating fresh measures to optimize operational efficiency in the delivery of petroleum and allied products to customers across the country.

The corporation stated that the measures would entail closer scrutiny and supervision of the operations of NNPC mega and affiliate retail outlets strategically clustered in major cities and towns throughout the country.

‘’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,’’ the corporation said.
