Kaduna Begins Daily Supply of 2 Million Litres of Fuel today



Kaduna RefineryAlhaji Idi Mukhtar, Managing Director, Kaduna Refining and Petrochemical Company (KRPC), says the company will begin daily release of 2 million litres of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) from Wednesday.

Mukhtar announced this on Tuesday while receiving the leadership of the state Council of the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) in his office.

He said the company would commence the supply to address the hardship faced by motorists and commuters due to the scarcity of the product.

“I want to announce that by tomorrow, Wednesday, Kaduna Refinery will begin operation with the release of 2 million litters of PMS to motorists in Kaduna and its environs. This will help reduce the hardship the citizens are facing due to the fuel scarcity in the state and other parts of the region.

Sustainability of the product is another issue Nigerians will want to hear but I can tell you that with the available crude oil, we will be producing 2 million litres of PMS a day. I can assure you that all hands are on deck to ensure constant supply; we also hope Nigerians will continue to pray for it to be sustained,” Mukhtar said.

He blamed the scarcity of the product on some persons in the society whom he described as “bad elements.”

“We have witnessed 13 infractions on our pipelines between Warri to Kaduna from March to April. We are losing fuel due to activities of unpatriotic elements tampering with pipelines, and this is unfortunate,” he said.

Muktar, therefore appealed to the media to intensify campaigns against activities of vandals, stressing that it was time they (vandals) realised the harm done to the country through their unpatriotic behaviour.

He assured the NUJ of the company’s readiness to partner the media in public enlightenment to tackle the activities of those sabotaging government efforts to ensure steady supply of fuel.

Chairman of the council, Malam Muhammed Garba, congratulated Mukhtar on his elevation from Executive Director, Services, to Managing Director of the KRPC.

Garba pledged the union’s support to the company through adequate publicity to ensure smooth supply of product.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.
