"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".

Addressing the fuel scarcity resurgence on Tuesday, Baru guaranteed Nigerians that the NNPC was on top of the situation.
