Fuel crisis: El-rufai vows to punish marketers selling petrol above N145

Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-rufai, has
warned petroleum products marketers
against diversion of the products to black
marketers or risk arrest and sanction by
relevant agencies.
El-rufai gave the warning shortly after the
State Executive Council meeting on Monday
in Kaduna, via a statement by Mr Samuel
Aruwan, his Senior Special Assistant, Media
and Publicity.
According to him, “government has directed
the marketers and other stakeholders to
ensure that petrol is sold at the official price
of N145.
“Security agencies have been directed to
monitor petrol stations day and night to
ensure absolute compliance.
“Allocations to petrol stations would
henceforth be announced in the media, and
that government was collaborating with the
Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation
(NNPC) to ensure availability of the
product.”
“The government extends its sincere
apologies to the members of the general
public following the scarcity and diversion of
the products in the state.
“It is quite unfortunate and I want to assure
our citizens that we are working round the
clock to resolve the matter.
“I also want to make it clear that all
petroleum marketers and other stakeholders
must comply with the resolutions of the
state executive council in view of this
development,” the governor said.
