The Department of State Services (DSS) has given the Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Limited and oil marketers a 48-hour ultimatum to make Premium Motor Spirit, known as petrol, available for Nigerians.
This was disclosed on Thursday by Peter Afunanya, the Spokesman for DSS, while briefing journalists at its office in Abuja after a closed-door meeting with stakeholders in the petroleum sector.
He stated that NNPC assured during the meeting that it has sufficient product to serve Nigerians during and after the Yuletide season.
He said the DSS would activate its operations across the country if they failed to comply with the directive.
Afunanya also lamented the challenge of fuel scarcity, noting that it has assumed a dimension that is harmful to the security of the country.
