The House of Representatives Committee on Petroleum Resources (Downstream) has commended the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) for a seamless supply of petroleum products during the last Yuletide and New Year festive period.
The committee in an interactive session with top management staff of the corporation yesterday in Abuja, said for the first time in recent memory, the Yuletide and the New Year were celebrated without fuel queues.
The committee, which has Joseph Akinlaja as chairman, urged NNPC management to continue to work hard and ensure uniformity in prices of petroleum products, particularly in the northern part of the country.
“This interactive session would be a continuous one to update relevant industry stakeholders on the development in the industry,” the chairman said.
Speaking at the session, NNPC GMD, Dr Maikanti Baru, who was represented by the Chief Operating Officer (COO) Downstream, Mr. Henry Ikem-Obih, thanked members of the House committee for their support to the corporation, assuring it that relevant government agencies would be alerted to take appropriate action on the disparity noticed in products prices in parts of the country.
Dr Baru told the committee that NNPC would continue to cooperate with it in respect of its oversight functions, among others.
