Ethnic Youth Leaders have poured encomium on the Group Chief Executive Officer of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL), Mele Kyari and the Executive Vice-president, Downstream of the company, Adedapo Segun for their relentless efforts towards clearing fuel supply disruption.

The Ethnic Youth Leaders in a statement signed by their spokesperson, Malam Kabiru, and deputy acting president NG Emmanuel also said Kyari is committed to ensuring downstream energy stability in line with ‘Renewed Hope Agenda of the President, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

They therefore faulted the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS) for calling for the resignation of the NNPCL GCEO, saying he has not relaxed but working round the clock to ensure adequate supply and availability of fuel despite daunting challenges, urging the students who are future leaders to appreciate and support his efforts in addressing the energy challenges.

They reminded NANS that the Kyari-led NNPCL is resting on its oars to address the situation and has already assured Nigerians that the ongoing fuel scarcity and queues will be cleared out by Wednesday.

“Just when NANS is threatening mass protest NNPCL under Kyari has given Nigerians its words that the company currently has an availability of products exceeding 1.5 billion litres, which can last for at least 30 days.

“Like we and other Nigerians already know, the three-day disruption in distribution being experienced is due to logistical issues, which has since been resolved by NNPLC but doing that ideally requires more time to return to normalcy. And unfortunately, however, some persons in the business are taking advantage of this situation to maximise profits. 

“And fortunate enough, the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (lPMAN) concurred that with the intervention of the NNPCL, the queues will disappear from filling stations as more products will be available for lifting by marketers and the supply will be stabilised.”
