Petrol scarcity lingers despite NNPC’s supply of 1.4-billion litres

The scarcity of petrol in major cities across the country has lingered despite repeated claims by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) that it has enough stock to keep the country wet, particularly during the yuletide, The Punch reports.

In its latest Energy in Brief report for the month of December 2015, the NNPC stated that it supplied over 1.4 billion litres of the Premium Motor Spirit, otherwise known as petrol, to the domestic market in the past few weeks in its drive to ensure the availability of the product for the end of the year activities/movements.

But despite the national oil firm’s claim, the scarcity of petrol in many cities has not abated as hundreds of motorists in long queues in front of few petrol stations that dispense the product were a common sight throughout the weekend.

The Executive Secretary, Major Oil Marketers Association of Nigeria (MOMAN), Mr. Obafemi Olawore, however indicated on Friday that members of the group had started placing orders for petrol after the marketers had been paid their subsidy claims. He stated sufficient petrol was being discharged at the Lagos port, adding that more product was expected in the country in the new week.

    1.climate change is the major chelalnge facing task of the environment today. when we wanted to have a long time energy supply,then we have reduce the carbon foot-prints and sourcing more from the renewable sources/energy.2.in these recent years we have been facing lots of natural calmities.we have seen great tsunamis,floods..and so on..global is the hottest topic on earth now.3.trees and plants are very important because they help us giving oxygen and they take the Co2.4.probably its, true because walking reduces the unwanted muscles ant they dissolve the fat. but the dont give the complete result in 2 or 3 days it takes long months .5.the same:3.trees and plants are very important because they help us giving oxygen and they take the Co2.garden is the place where there are so many plants and trees.also, we can get rid of our dillusion.6.Water already has energy, so all we have to do is capture and direct it. To make hydropower, water that flows from a river is usually held up by a dam and channeled past one or more turbines. The water catches and spins the turbines' blades. The spinning shaft of the turbine turns a generator, which produces alternating electric current. The current runs through power cables to a transformer, which converts it into high-voltage current that runs through power lines to the public.7.Although there are numerous other methods of generating electricity, solar panels have a number of considerable advantages for both the consumer, the producer, and the environment.Solar panels are clean while generating electricity from sunlight, solar panels produce virtually no pollution, whereas burning fossil fuels releases large quantities of toxic gases into the atmosphere.8.Global Warming is the increase of Earth's average surface temperature due to effect of greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide emissions from burning fossil fuels or from deforestation, which trap heat that would otherwise escape from Earth. This is a type of greenhouse effect.9.i would say as IT IS NOT WASTE UNTIL WE WASTE IT .there are lots of things done from waste.ex: manure is done by decomposing veg peels , egg shells .10. of course it can also run in LPG cyclindres and there are also solar cars. than y not? its possible.
