"These people are selling to us above the recommended ex-depot price of N133 per litre".
"If we add other costs to it, we can not sell at N145 per litre".
"The trucks have started loading the products and we hope by tomorrow when the commodity would have reached the filling stations, the problem will be over", he said.
He said the NNPC management had invited IPMAN Lagos branch to a meeting at the NNPC Towers on December 14.
However, a group under the aegis of PMB's Oil and Gas Progress (POGP) has commended Baru's steps as one in the right direction from a chief executive who understands the plight of Nigerians and saw the need to alleviate their sufferings as the Yuletide season approaches.
"For the umpteenth time, I wish to call on all Nigerians to stop panic buying".
The NNPC in a release also informed Nigerians that there was no plan whatsoever to increase the prices of petroleum products both at the ex-depot level and pump price ahead of the forthcoming yuletide.
"We have already mandated the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to furnish us with the daily distribution".
"Right now, we are having a total shortage of products because we are not getting supply from our depots". There is also the Managing Director of Petroleum and Product Marketing Company.
"We are prepared and we have sufficient products that will last us to the end of the year and into next year".
A fuel attendant told Tribune Online that there was no fuel, while few ones continued to sell the commodity at the official rate of N145. But, queues have surfaced in filling stations in Sokoto metropolis and its environs, creating hardship for motorists and commuters.
The committee chairman warned filling stations in the habit of hoarding fuel to inflict untold pains on Nigerians to desist as it would not be business as usual.
Addressing the fuel scarcity resurgence on Tuesday, Baru guaranteed Nigerians that the NNPC was on top of the situation.
Although, a Task Force team from the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) was seen trying to ensure that black market businesses are not allowed to thrive, hawkers were still making brisk sales in kegs and gallons in most parts of the city.
She said that any petroleum retail outlet found short-changing members of the public in terms of quantity and quality would be appropriately dealt with.
Similarly, motorists who bought petrol from the Ascon station along the IBB Way in Wuse, said they spent an average of 30 minutes to get in and out of the station with petrol in their tanks.
