- Aboyeji made the confirmation in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos, assuring Nigerians that the current scarcity of fuel would end in the next two days.
“Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) is now making use of Major Marketers Association of Nigeria (MOMAN) tank farms to distribute petrol.
“This is to accelerate the product to different locations. As I am talking to you, our members are taking the product out of depots to filling stations across the country.
Atoyebi denied allegation of diversion of the product by his members, adding that such had not been reported to him.
“It is not easy to divert the product because petroleum tankers loaded were being monitored to their destinations,” he said.
