DPR Seals More Fuel Stations In Imo

The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) in Imo state has continued its raid on independent petroleum marketers who sell fuel above the government approved price of 145 naira per litre.

During its routine monitoring of four Local Government areas in Imo state Aboh, Ezinihitte, Ahiazu Mbaise and Obowo Local Governments, seven filling stations were sealed due to hoarding, under-dispensing and selling above regulated pump price.

The agency says it will continue to monitor petroleum marketers in the state until they all adhere strictly to the Federal government’s regulated price.

Since the fuel crisis started in December 2017, most fillings stations in Imo state have continued to sell between 190 and 220 naira per litre of fuel.

However, on several occasions, the DPR have sealed many fillings stations contravening the directives of the federal government but this has not stopped the marketers for selling above the normal pump price.

The agency maintained that they will continue to perform their mandate to sanction all erring petroleum marketers who sell above pump price, hoard fuel or under dispense to the general public.
