The National Petroleum Authority (NPA) has assured fuel consumers that the pockets of fuel shortage are under control as the situation will soon normalize.
Citi News checks on Monday revealed a seeming shortage of fuel in some parts of Accra as consumers hopped from one filling station to the other in search of the commodity.
The Public Relations Officer of the NPA, Yaro Kasambata however said the situation is “not as widespread as the initial reports have portrayed it to be.”
He revealed that his outfit on a daily basis supplies more than eight million liters of fuel to stabilize the continuous seeming shortage of the product.
Mr. Kasambata further stated that the NPA is aware of the exact deficit on the market therefore, “it is work in progress…and it’s not an out of hand situation at all; it’s being managed.”
He insisted the NPA is stocking up the market to attain stability and curb the frequent pockets of fuel shortage in the capital.
“We have a little challenge; it’s being worked on. You have pockets of shortages in some parts of the city, it is not widespread and I’m saying, we are working; increasing our stock on a daily basis…” he said.
