The Chief Executive Officer, NMDPRA, Farouk Ahmed, confirmed this to the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos on Tuesday.

Ahmed said he had checked with the Major Oil Marketers Association of Nigeria and Nigeria National Petroleum Company Ltd. on the level of fuel stock and confirmed that they had sufficient stock.

“I spoke with the MOMAN’S Executive Secretary this morning and he told me they have sufficient stock.

“I have directed them to start evacuating the product immediately to filling stations.
