Amid the continued smuggling of petroleum products out of the country to neighboring countries including Cameroun, the Nigeria Customs Service has said its restriction of fuel supply along borders is being opposed by communities and marketers.
It was reported on March 29th that the supply of petrol by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, which is the sole importer of the product into the country, had risen above the pre-COVID-19 levels, crossing 70 million litres daily in the fourth quarter of last year.
The corporation said 2.25 billion litres of petrol were sold and distributed in December, translating to 72.72 million litres per day as against 57.44 million litres in November.
Petrol supply by the NNPC jumped to 77.17 million litres daily in October from 52.63 million litres in September and 63.27 million litres in January 2020, according to NNPC data.
