Kachikwu Orders DPR To Sanction Errant Fuel Stations, Sell-off Their Petrol For Free

The Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr. Ibe Kachikwu, on Tuesday ordered the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) to sanction errant petrol stations in the country and sell-off for free the storage of those stations that are hoarding the product.
The Minister was speaking after a working visit to some retail outlets in Abuja, Group Public Affairs Division General Manager
Ohi Alegbe said in a statement. 

The measure is part of a spirited federal effort to end the fuel queues in major cities across the country, and the Minister asked DPR to ensure strict compliance by visiting various fuel stations.

“I have instructed DPR that if they discover any fuel station involved in hoarding, they should sell the products for free to customers around there. It is not just sealing the station that is the answer.  It is penalizing them when they do these things and I hope the message goes out loud and clear,” he said.
