Nigerian Guy Stops Petrol Station In His Area From Collecting "Keg Charges" by correctbae: 8:20am On Jun 30, 2018
Nigerian Guy, Favourite Onwuemene took to his Facebook page to narrates how he stopped a petrol station from collecting keg charges from people.

According to his post, he went to purchase fuel and saw how #50 was being collected from keg users, it got him pissed off and told the fuel Attendant not to try it with him but they refused, after much dragging with the management, he got threatened. He decided to write to the franchise owner of the petrol station who decided to take up the case and it got all staffs of that petrol station sacked.

His post:
For months the fuel station close to my house has been forcing anyone buying fuel in kegs to pay a minimum bribe of N50 depending on quantity.
I pleaded with the attendants not to try that nonsense with me, they refused. Thrice I asked to speak to the manager and he supported the attendants, saying all fuel stations do it.
About 3 weeks ago I went there to buy fuel, the attendants refused selling to me if I didn't pay them the bribe first. I told her I wasn't going to leave the station if she doesn't sell me fuel because it was discrimination and illegal to refuse me service in my Country.
While I was waiting a "big man" came in his expensive jeep to buy fuel and paid bribe of N100. Immediately he left the attendant turned to me and said if that man can pay for his keg, why will I, a small boy, refuse to pay? Calling me a kid pissed me off and I went in to see the manager. The manager supported his attendants and threatened he was going to call the cops on me and tell them I came to rob the station. That was the final straw.
I left, promising I was going to take legal action. They probably thought I was making empty threats.
That night I wrote to the fuel station franchise owners informing them of what had happened and that I intended to get justice. I thought it right to first inform them before proceeding with my plans, didn't think they were going to do anything, considering the manager already told me that the charge was authorised by management.
Next day I got a call from the regional manager of Lagos asking for more info and that I give them some time to investigate. After some days, I got another call asking me to point out all those involved. They all got fired. Right now that practice of paying bribe to buy fuel has stopped for everyone buying fuel there.
It cost me more, in time and money, to get redress, than I would have spent bribing those attendants for a year. But it was worth it, because if all Nigerians surrender to the abnormality of paying bribes for the most basic things, this Country will never get better.
We can all continue to blame the Presidency while we turn a blind eye, and even support the rot in our own backyard.

Every fuel attendant has the right to collect keg charges. How much is #50 or #100 that you can't overlook. Those people suffer to make sure you have fuel in your car, at the end of the month they are paid peanuts yet you can't appreciate them with a token?

This is wonderful.

I stopped paying for keg since two years ago because I always threaten them will legal action if they insist on that bribery.


Buhari promised to reduce price of fuel but today the man who doesn't have a business that run on fuel has made life unbearable for the citizens.


Buhari should go back plese

Something similar happened to me
Petrol was been sold for 160 instead of the norma pump price

Sent a letter to the authority.
Authorities investigated,
Petrol station was sealed for a month and they had to pay a huge sum to re open.
Now it’s back to the normal price.

A lesson or two can be learnt from this. If your papers are legit and complete, why do you give N50 to the highway mopol? Why do we tip civil servants to do their job?
Correcting these societal ills take time and energy. It's easier to pay your way through. But every penny you pay is an encouragement to deep-seated corruption.

the problem with most of us is that we do not know how to enforce our rights

during the fuel scarcity, I was in one of the mega stations after spending over 6 hours queuing.

for reasons best known to them, they switch off their lights and said they were not selling again.

all pleads with them fell on deaf ears

quickly I called their customers care and explained to them. after a few minutes someone called me apologising and give me assurance they would start selling

not long, I saw the attendants running out as though they were being chased.

that was how they started selling fuel again

I felt so good that day that despite how bad things are in Nigeria, some things still work

Next time before you start disturbing people online about how far you went at stopping corruption, you owe them a lengthy apology for the role you played at enthroning the corruption.

Zoogerians deserve whatever they get.

Good patriotic deed.

Some insane minds who claim things are not working in Nigeria as they are in foreign countries, would still be the same corruption enablers who would criticise the efforts of this young man, claiming he took food out of the mouth of average Nigerians while the politicians are stealing billions.

Corruption is evil regardless of the amount involved or the social status of those who attempt to establish it as a way of life.
