No Need To Hoard Fuel During Coronavirus Lockdown

The National Petroleum Authority (NPA) has reassured Ghanaians that there would be no shortage of petroleum products during the 14-day coronavirus lockdown.

This statement comes after crowds gathered at various fuel and gas filling stations to stock up ahead of Monday’s lockdown.

In a statement issued by the Corporate Affairs department of the NPA, the authority said the crowds gathering at the various fuel and gas filling stations “are violating the social distancing protocols which health experts have advised is an important measure of controlling the spread of coronavirus (COVID 19).”

It assured Ghanaians that “the country has adequate stocks of petroleum products and all retail outlets will be fully operational during the lockdown period.”

“In view of this, there will be NO SHORTAGES OF LPG, PETROL OR DIESEL in the country during and beyond the lockdown period,” it emphasised.
