109 Mega Stations to be built Nationwide

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) yesterday said would build a mega filling station in each of the senatorial district in Nigeria, translating to 109 stations nationwide.
It added that this would cater for petroleum products needs of residents in the zones.

NNPC’ Group Executive Director, Commercial and Investment, Dr. Babatunde Adeniran, stated in a statement from the corporation’s spokesman, Ohi Alegbe, that the planned construction of the new stations are in line with NNPC’s desire to ensure efficient distribution and country-wide penetration of petroleum products.
The statement which was made available in Abuja, said the corporation has already begun nationwide consultation with stakeholders to get them to support the planned expansion of its retail outlets across the country.
The Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, had last week disclosed that the corporation was finalising plans to build new mega filling stations either in partnership with interested investors or on its own.
