The Nigerian Midstream and Downstream Petroleum Regulatory Authority (NMDPRA) says measures are ongoing to truck petroleum products via alternative routes to mitigate fuel scarcity caused by the flooding in Kogi.

The agency disclosed this in a statement on Thursday.

On Wednesday, commuters witnessed queues for petrol in Abuja.

Reacting to this, NMDPRA said there were sufficient petroleum products, but the situation caused by the flood had affected the distribution of products to the federal capital territory and environs.


The agency, however, assured the public that there are sufficient petroleum products inland.

It also urged marketers to desist from hoarding the product.

“The authority wishes to state that the fuel queues at fuel stations are caused by unprecedented flooding in Kogi State, which has submerged a greater part of the city and grounded all vehicular movements,” the statement reads.


“Consequently, the general public is advised to avoid panic buying at fuel stations as the NMDPRA is working assiduously with relevant stakeholders and government agencies to ensure product availability across the country.

“The authority wishes to reiterate its commitment to Nigerians to ensure seamless supply and distribution of petroleum products nationwide.”
