The Nigerian Midstream and Downstream Petroleum Regulatory Authority (NMDPRA) has assured Nigerians of enough fuel during the yuletide.

The Yenagoa Field Controller, Mr Nicholas Ogbe, gave the assurance on Friday in an interview.

He assured Bayelsa residents of stable supply petrol during and after the Christmas celebration.

He cautioned oil marketers against engaging in sharp practices capable of distorting product supply.

Ogbe said that there was sufficient fuel nationwide and urged marketers not to hoard products and thereby create artificial scarcity.

The controller restated the agency’s commitment to safety and advised consumers to observe all necessary safety protocols in the handling of fuel, especially during the harmattan.

Ogbe  assured Nigerians that NMDPRA would continue to initiate appropriate initiatives that would create opportunities for investors and stakeholders in the oil and gas industry in Nigeria. (NAN)
