The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR), on Wednesday, March 17, revealed that it has sanctioned 11 filling stations in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) for under-dispensing and overpricing of petrol.
The Zonal Operations Controller of DPR, Abuja, Mr. Abubakar Buba, who disclosed this to newsmen in Abuja said that the agency has intensified its surveillance of all filling stations to ensure compliance.
Mr Buba said, “We want to intensify the surveillance in all stations to make sure that all operators comply with the rules and regulations of their operations. We sanctioned about eight stations on Tuesday and today, three stations which you have also seen because of overpricing and under-dispensing of products. So far so good, there are no queues, we did not find any station hoarding but we discovered few infractions which we have noted down and they are going to pay the appropriate fine. The infractions are overpricing to under-dispensing.”
