The National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) on Wednesday assured that normalcy would soon return to filling states nationwide if the current tempo of loading at the depots continued till the weekend.
Alhaji Tokunbo Korodo, the South-West Chairman of the union, gave the assurance in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.
Korodo said that the NNPC commenced massive pumping of petrol to its depot at Mosinmi early this week and loading of petroleum trucks had started.
“Going round some depots in Lagos, I observed that loading was going on and more filling stations are selling the product at the control price.
“Some filling stations that are selling between N130 and N150 will be forced to sell at control price when the market is flooded with petrol.
“If NNPC can keep the tempo of the loading till weekend, more filling stations will have petrol and the queue of motorists at filling stations will reduce.
