DPR Seals 6 Filling Stations, Enforces N145 Per Litre In Anambra by laidelaitan(f): 4:26pm On Jan 13
DPR seals 6 filling stations, enforces N145 per litre in Anambra

The affected filling stations were located in Awka, the capital city, Onitsha the commercial town and neighbouring Nkpor and Obosi.
The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) has seal off 6 fuel stations in Anambra for allegedly hoarding and selling petrol above the official pump price of N145 per litre.

The affected filling stations were located in Awka, the capital city, Onitsha the commercial town and neighbouring Nkpor and Obosi.

NAN reports that Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) sold between N220 to N240 per litre in Awka and most parts of Anambra at outlets owned by major and independent marketers.

The DPR also enforced the government approved pump price of N145 per litre by supervising the dispensing of over 16,000 litres of PMS to customers in the state.

Speaking on their field operation in Anambra, Mr Callistus Obodoechina of the Retail Outlets and marketing Unit, DPR Enugu office said the enforcement would continue until marketers complied.

Obodoechina said the reasons for sealing the filling stations include selling product above the approved pump price, refusal to revert to normal rate. alleged involvement in diversion and hoarding of products.

“In line with the resolve of DPR to ensure that Nigerians especially PMS user buy the product at the government approved pump price, we have intensified monitoring here in Anambra.

“Our aim is to ensure that every marketer who has products sells at the normal price and make that there is no hoarding and diversion.

“In two days we have supervised the sale of over 16, 000 litres of PMS to the public at N145 and the sense of relief clear on the faces of people.

“We also sealed six filling stations that refused to revert immediately on the excuse that the director or technician was not around and those who hoarded or diverted products."

The official said it was unfortunate that marketers in the state had continued to cheat customers in spite of the government pronouncement on the situation.

Also speaking, Mr Uyinme Akpan, an official of DPR deplored a situation where marketers return to the exploitative ways soon after the DPR enforcement team left their filling stations.

Akpan warned that such practice would be met with strict application of the law and advised them to either sell at the approved rate or don’t sell at all.

He assured customers in Anambra of continued protection of the DPR and encouraged them to report defiant marketers for appropriate actions.

Meanwhile customers in Anambra have commended the DPR for its mitigating role and called for a more robust enforcement through deployment of more teams to the state.

Mr Chris Nduka said Anambra was so big that one team of DPR enforcers cannot create the desired effect because of the attitude of marketers who were bent on ripping off their customers.

“The federal government iis doing well through the activities of DPR but it is not enough, the agency should be beefed up with manpower to effectively manage te situation,” he said.

Lol.

Even when price of fuel has normalised in other parts of the country, these people are still ripping themselves off, and keep throwing the fault at Bubu's doorstep.

Nawao.

They will still come out with their jugunu explanation of this action of DPR, that is if they don't even call it a grand plan to stop them from doing businesses.

Its either happening now or going to happen soon.

You can't keep on shedding blood without consequences.

2Ki 9:7
And thou shalt smite the house of Ahab(evil ruler) thy master, that I may avenge the blood of my servants the prophets, and the blood of all the servants of the LORD, at the hand of Jezebel.(evil ruler).

Now if you think back, it may be happening already

So DPR is now suddenly active again, trying to make us feel grateful for the N145 that's even too much in the first place.

Re: DPR Seals 6 Filling Stations, Enforces N145 Per Litre In Anambra by fratermathy(m): 7:04pm On Jan 13
When will they come to Akwa Ibom, Delta and Cross River?

I reported Jobayo Investment Ltd and many other filling in Uyo for selling fuel at the rate of N210 per litre last year. I even provided them with pictorial evidence. I called and sent mails. Guess what? Up till today, the said station still sells fuel at the same rate and no DPR official has gone there to investigate despite the many assurances I got.

I also reported some stations in Delta and Cross River but the stations are still selling. So why is the DPR selective in sealing stations and enforcing N145 per litre? Are they being political? Or they've possibly been bribed by the station owners?

I weep for naija!

If this is true, then thank God. I school in Anambra and I can categorically say that petrol stations here are the worst. I heard that some states now sell 145 but in Anambra they still sell for 220. I swear everytime we blame Buhari but we Igbos (especially Igbos from Anambra are the worst) Commercial drivers even like it because they now charge times two of what they normally charge. Please DPR don't just seal it also give the PMS for free especiall petrol stations from Umuokpu to Arroma
