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
DSS Spokesman, Peter Afunanya, announced the directive while briefing journalists at the headquarters of the DSS in Abuja after over three hours closed-door meeting with stakeholders in the petroleum sector.
He said failure to comply, the DSS will activate its operations across the country.
According to Afunanya, the challenge of fuel scarcity has assumed a dimension that is detrimental to the security of the country.
He said during the meeting, the NNPC agreed that there is enough product that will serve Nigerians during and after the Yuletide season.
