The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, on Monday, began plans for the adequate supply of petroleum products between now and the end of the year.

NNPC said it aims at sustaining a steady supply of over two billion litres of Premium Motor Spirit PMS, during the period.

The NNPC in a statement in Abuja, stated that it became necessary to consciously plan for this time of the year because, in the last couple of years, the period was sometimes marked by a scarcity of PMS.
