Group Managing Director (GMD) of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC), Mele Kyari, on Tuesday, dramatically blamed fuel queues in major cities of the countries on the Sallah holidays.

Kyari made the disclosure while speaking to journalists in National Assembly when he appeared before the House Ad-hoc Committee Investigating The State Of Refineries In Nigeria.

He explained that fuel queues took over the streets of Abuja recently, due to the public holidays for Workers and Sallah which stalled truck drivers from loading products for distribution across the country.

He however noted that 2.8 billion litres of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) were currently available and will serve even for a period of 47 days without importation.

He added that 150 trucks loaded with fuel will arrive in Abuja Tuesday and Wednesday to help clear the queues.

“During the holidays, truck drivers could not present trucks in most of the depots and because of that, there are some glitches around loadout in the depots.

We have corrected this, all trucks loaded out at the maximum today; we believe this is a very temporary thing, we believe without 150 trucks coming into Abuja today and another 150 coming into Abuja tomorrow, the scarcity will soon go away,” he said.
