NNPC spokesman, Ndu Ughamadu, who signed the statement said that the warning followed the uncovering of 144 oil tankers filled with petroleum products in Kano.
According to him, government has intervened in an industrial action embarked upon by the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria (PENGASSAN) over labour disputes with NECONDE Energy Services Ltd.
“NNPC warns marketers not to hoard products as law enforcement agencies, working with industry regulators, have been detailed to take appropriate measures against any defaulter.

“The Corporation further assures that there are enough petroleum products to keep the nation wet,” Ughamadu said.
He urged motorists and other consumers of   petroleum products to resist the temptation to go into panic buying.
