He reiterated that the NNPC took swift measures and were in constant touch with all the stakeholders which ensured constant and uninterrupted supply and distribution of petroleum products across the country.
He further commended the GMD and his team for their tireless efforts in interfacing between them and various state governments which also ensured seamless and hitch-free movement of petroleum products to service stations nationwide.
The IPMAN chairman further commended the humanitarian efforts of the leadership of the NNPC in lending a helping hand through corporate social responsibility by donating billions of Naira worth of equipment and supplies in support of the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic in the country.
