Department Of Petroleum Resources Seals Filling Stations In Imo For Selling Above Approved Price
The Department of Petroleum Resources has sealed some filling stations in Imo state for selling petrol above the government approved pump price.
Zonal Controller of DPR in Imo, Roseline Wilki who spoke to newsmen as she led a team of officials on a routine monitoring exercise in Owerri, the state capital, said the filling stations were sealed for selling Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) also known as petrol above the authorised pump price.
“We are here to ensure that there is quality, to ensure availability of the product, and to ensure that you don’t have adulterated product and that there is no hoarding.
“We are here to ensure that the operators are selling within the government approved pump price.
“We will definitely sanction those that are not selling within the (government approved) pump price and for the adulteration; we will make sure that they (consumers) get the right product.”
The DPR zonal controller who urged residents in the state to disregard any rumour of an increase in the pump price of petrol, also asked them to report any independent marketer who sells above the normal pump price to the department.
Wilki also warned operators against hoarding and quality delivery.
“Right from the depot, we are going to do carriages inspection and ensure that products that are being loaded are within the correct spec.
“They (residents) should not rely on black market products because wherever they find that there are issues, they should not hesitate to report to the department, and we have offices in almost every state of the Federation.”
