13 Filling Stations Sealed by DPR in Akwa-Ibom


Mr. Bassey Nkanga, Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) Controller for Akwa Ibom and Cross River State has announced that his team has sealed no fewer than 13 filling stations in Akwa Ibom for selling above the standard pump price of N145 per litre.
Bassey Nkanga said in Eket, Akwa Ibom that the stations sold petrol for N180 between February 22 and 27.

Nkanga, however, said that some of the affected filling stations had paid the fines imposed on them but were still under seal because they were serial offenders.
“Paying the fine does not guarantee that we will unseal them. If you are a serial offender, we can decide to shut down your station for a while,’’ he said.
He warned petroleum product marketers in the state to desist from selling the product at odd hours, threatening that those involved would be sanctioned if caught.
The DPR official added that the department would continue monitoring filling stations to ensure that the products were sold at the approved pump price.

Nkanga said that the department was partnering with other government agencies to ensure that marketers did not short-change the public.
Mr. Paul Kola explains how he got 50% of his revenue after investing it in this profitable platform
