The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has said that four cargoes of about 4 million litres of petrol are being expected in the country within the next few days.

The spokesman of the Agency, Garba Mohammed, gave the assurance on Friday.

According to him, this will address the gap in supply that has led to the current fuel scarcity being experienced by Nigerians.

He said that the NNPC is working round the clock to find immediate and lasting solutions to the problems in the sector.

The National President of the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG), Mr Igwe Achese, had earlier said that he was hopeful that before the end of April, the petrol scarcity witnessed across Nigeria would end.

He said that the union had, at a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday, advised the government to put in necessary policies that would adequately regulate the prices of petroleum products.

Mr Achese told Channels Television in a telephone interview that the stakeholders at the meeting agreed to work together in making sure that product distribution is not hindered.
