Edo State Govt. Begins Clamp Down On Errant Petrol Stations To Control Fuel Scarcity

The Edo State Government has said that it would commence monitoring of marketers and petrol stations across the state from Wednesday, December 20, 2017, and will shut errant stations as part of measures to prevent the hoarding of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) during the yuletide...

The Commissioner for Oil, Gas & Solid Minerals, Hon. Joseph Ugheoke, gave the warning in a chat with journalists at the Government House in Benin City, Edo State capital, on Tuesday.

He explained that the state government has placed a ban on the sale of PMS in jerry cans, adding that notice has been sent to managers of petrol stations not to sell PMS of more than 20 litres to buyers with jerry cans. There is no need for panic buying by motorists across the state.

According to him, officials of the ministry will ensure that petrol stations that were supplied PMS, dispense the product to buyers based on the regulated price of N145 per litre and any station hoarding the product will be shut down.
