The Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has said there are no plans to increase the price of fuel products during this yuletide season.

He said the corporation has enough fuel in stock to distribute across the country.

A survey by New Telegraph, yesterday, showed that queues have surfaced in some parts of Lagos and Ogun States.

"Awkward" could well describe how Dr. Maikanti Baru, the Group Managing Director, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), felt on Tuesday having deserted his "Forbes Oil & Gas Man of the Year Award 2017" in London as fuel queues return to Abuja. But majority of filling stations in Lagos and environs were dispensing while scanty queues were noticed in few others.

But queues surfaced in most petrol stations in the cities as motorist engaged in panic buying.

"The trucks have started loading the products and we hope by tomorrow when the commodity would have reached the filling stations, the problem will be over", he said.

"Officials of the DPR have embarked on sustained monitoring and surveillance and any marketer found wanting will face necessary sanctions, " Makera said.

Retail Limited are fully geared up to ensure that motorists enjoy uninterrupted access to petrol throughout the nation.
