While speaking with newsmen, the Head of Operations, DPR Ibadan office, Mr. Sadiq Danjuma disclosure that 26 stations have been sealed, for allegedly hoarding and selling Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) also known petrol above the official rate of N145.
He said, “Government has not increased fuel price, we cannot allow marketer to be increase the price arbitrarily. We are taking more drastic measure against erring filling stations we are not only going seal their stations we will have sanction them for and have their operation licence revoked”.
He informed that one of the reasons the department find it difficult to get rid of the unholy practice is because, “marketers always network among themselves to evade sanction whenever the operatives of DPR are out for monitoring”.
“We are still going to other places. We have visited them before and we will surely revisit them and enforce the erring stations to comply”, he said.
