The Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Mallam Kyari, has re-commissioned the Ilorin, Kwara State NNPC Depot. This has caused an increase in access to the supply of petroleum products in the state and its environs.
The Depot is one of the Corporation’s network that was shut down, due to pipeline vandalism more than eight years ago.
According to Kyari, the re-commissioning was to assist in restoring petroleum products supply and distribution for the advantage of Nigerians, which is in line with President Buhari’s vision.
Kwara State Governor, Mallam, Abdulrahman Abdulrasaq, who witnessed the recommissioning, commended the Corporation for its foresight in restoring the operations at the facility.
“The NNPC has saved us the stress of moving products through trucks through hundreds of kilometres with its attendant hazards and will help in securing our national assets”, he added.
