PENGASSAN shuts Kaduna refinery, disrupts supply of petrol

The Kaduna Refining and Petrochemicals Company (KRPC) has been shut down in the aftermath of the strike embarked upon by the Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association (PENGASSAN),Leadership reports.

It was gathered yesterday that the shutdown expectedly paralysed supply of Premium Motor Spirit (petrol) as depot officials were not on ground to attend to tanker drivers who had arrived the distribution point to commence loading of the commodity.

This invariably affected the supply of petrol to the Kaduna metropolis and other Northern states as motorists queued to get the product from the few filling stations that had fuel. It was also gathered that while some shut their gates to customers, others willing to dispense the product were besieged by motorists desperate to fill their tanks at any price.
