Fuel scarcity: DPR seals four petrol stations in Abuja

Abuja  –   The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) has sealed four petrol stations in Abuja for hoarding, under dispensing and other sharp practices in selling Premium Motor Spirit (PMS)
Alhaji Mohammed Usman, DPR Zonal Operation Controller, North Central, told newsmen while monitoring some filling stations on Saturday that DPR would continue to sanction those engaged in sharp practices.
Commenting 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.
Another motorist, Abdulrahman Sani said that they spend over five hours at the NNPC Gauiyya Affiliate station before they could get the product.(NAN)
