Fuel hoarding: DPR seals 4 stations in Abuja for hoarding fuel

Today the 23rd of April, the Department of Petroleum Resources has sealed four petrol stations in Abuja for hoarding, under dispensing and other sharp practices in selling petrol
DPR Zonal Operation Controller Alhaji Mohammed Usman told newsmen while monitoring some filling stations on Saturday that DPR would continue to sanction those engaged in sharp practices.
Commenting on the fuel scarcity situation, Usman said that most of the filling stations visited had products to sell, adding that there was no need for the long queues witnessed in the city.
The Zonal Controller said the DPR had directed that henceforth, there should be no reserve of fuel for the so called ‘special customers’.
Mr Ademola Abraham, a motorist, at NNPC Beulah, commended the effort of the DPR in ensuring that the products were dispensed fairly.
“We have been here (petrol filling station) since 6a.m but they refused to sell to us. Yesterday, we saw them discharging products but yet they have refused to sell,’’ he said.
