The Director of Petroleum Resources (DPR) Mordecai Ladan, yesterday raised Nigerians’ hope on availability of petrol with the announcement that consignments ordered by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and major oil marketers had started arriving the nation’s ports. Major Marketers had withdrawn from the importation of products as a result of difficulty in accessing foreign exchange until the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Emmanuel Ibe Kachikwu and the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) collaborated to give them easier access to FOREX.

He broke the news to reporters after inspecting an NNPC affiliate station in Gwarimpa and the Oando Petrol Station on Obafemi Awolowo Way, Jabi, beside Karimo Road fly over in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT). The Director also shut down the Oando Petrol Station over suspected adulteration of its fuel.

Ladan had led the enforcement team of the department to the station after a tip-off that it had refused to sell its product.
