Filling Stations Sealed In Delta For Alleged Sharp Practices By DPR

The Warri Zonal Office of the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR), has sealed 70 filling stations for alleged sharp practices in parts of Delta in past six weeks.

 The Operations Controller of the zone, Mr Antai Asuquo, made the disclosure in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Warri.

Asuquo said that the stations were sanctioned for hoarding, under-dispensing, over-pricing, abandonment and diversion of products. He said that the stations were sealed in Warri, Ughelli, Sapele, Ozoro, Olleh, Kwale, Agbor, Obiaruku and Asaba.

The exercise is a continuous one until the petroleum marketers complied with government’s approved pump price of N145 per litre. It is not our intention to seal a petrol station that has products but the products should be sold to the public at the regulated pump price.

The premium motor spirit remains a regulated product and the price is N145 per litre. He appealed to the public to assist the DPR with useful information on any station selling above the regulated price. NAN reports that most filling stations in Warri are selling fuel at between N180 and N200 per litre.
