Abuja, June 30, 2024 – The Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPCL) has denied the allegation that its retail stations are forcing customers to buy engine oil along with petrol.

Olufemi Soneye, Its Spokesman, denied he allegation in a statement in Abuja on Sunday.

The statement reads: “The attention of NNPC Retail Limited has been drawn to a recent video clip making rounds on social media (X to be precise) concerning a fuel pump attendant in one of NNPC filling stations.

“In the said video, customers were coerced to purchase lubricants or engine oil as a prerequisite for purchasing or dispensing Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), also known as petrol. Still in the video, the attendant alleged that this was a directive from NNPC Retail Management.

At all NNPC Retail filling stations, customers are not obligated to purchase lubricants or engine oil or other products as a precursor to buying PMS (petrol)

“In the meantime, NNPC Retail Limited has launched an investigation into the unfortunate incident and assures that appropriate disciplinary action will be taken against the culprit(s)”.
