Kyari spoke when the National Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) led some top members of the commission on a visit to the NNPC Limited office to seek collaboration for the success of the forthcoming general elections.
He said: “We know that logistics is a major component of electoral duties. NNPC has always supported INEC, not in this direct form, but in making sure that fuel is made available to all vehicles that are involved in the electoral process.
“Needless to say that there was no formal framework for that, and there were no even exact formal requests for this. All the same, we are always conscious of the necessity to provide support to INEC whenever elections take place.
“In today’s very different situation, it is not just an honor to NNPC, It’s also a challenge to us, to come into the equation in making sure that we have a stable political system in our country and we’ll be happy to contribute to this.
“Much as even you are going to pay for the product that we’re going to deliver to you.
“Having said this chairman, we’re the largest downstream company in the country today. Six months ago, it was not so but today we have acquired huge assets since our incorporation into a limited liability company and we have spread across the country.
“That is not to say that we’re in every city and every town, it is possible that there may be some locations where we may not be present.
“We’ll work with your logistic team to identify those areas where we may not have a presence so that we can bring in other marketing companies into the conversation so that the products are made available to all the 100,000 vehicles that you have indicated.”
