NNPC Retail Denies Forcing Customers To Buy Lubricant To Get Petrol

The Nigerian National Petroleum Company, NNPC, retail limited, has distanced itself from claims that customers should patronise its engine oil before getting petrol at its retail outlets.

The company said its attention 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 its 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.

The attendant in the video had alleged that this was a directive from NNPC Retail Management.

Reacting, the NNPC Retail stated unequivocally that the allegation is entirely false and does not represent the company’s Customer Service Charter.

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) it said

Speaking further on the incident, managing director of NNPC Retail Ltd, Huub Stokman said: “We are dedicated to providing clear, transparent and quality service to all our customers, guaranteeing that their needs are met without any recourse to unnecessary and unscrupulous conditionalities.”

He advised the public to disregard the information in its entirety and report any such occurrences to the appropriate authority.

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).
