The Chairman of Depot and Petroleum Products Marketers Association (DAPPMA), Mr. Dapo Abiodun, gave the commendation on Thursday when he led a delegation of the group’s members on a courtesy call on the Group Managing Director of NNPC, Dr Maikanti Baru.
“In the past, we were importing 70% of products while NNPC was importing 30%, being the supplier of last resort which is their responsibility. They moved to doing 50% and by November, they were doing about 90% of the volumes.
“So we have to come and appreciate them because in spite of the constraints that got them to take on the burden of increasing their importation from 30% to 50% and then 90%, there were no hiccups, there were no queues, there were no shortages. We think NNPC should be commended for that,”
