The Group General-Manager Public Affairs of the NNPC, Mr Ndu Ughammadu gave the warning while speaking to Abuchi Nwozor in a telephone interview.
According to Mr Ughammadu, the warning became necessary in view of the speculations that there will be an increase in the pump price of petrol which has resulted in making people to embark on panic buying and storage of petrol in their various houses.
Mr Ughammadu, who cautioned the public on the inherent danger of storing petrol in residential buildings, maintained that the pump price of petrol has remained stable and will continue to be so, adding that the NNPC, has no plan to increase the pump price of petrol.
The Group General Manager Public Affairs of the NNPC who disclosed that the Corporation has enough petroleum products in stock for its users said that the establishment will continue to engage in policies that will impact positively on the lives of the people.
