Minister for Petroleum orders hoarded fuel to be distributed for free

Ibe Kachikwu,the new Minister of State for Petroleum Resources who also serves as the Managing Director of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) , yesterday ordered the Department of Petroleum Resources, (DPR), to freely dispense to the public the petroleum products in any fuel station that is discovered to be hoarding petrol during this period of fuel scarcity. Kachikwu gave the order after a working visit to some retail outlets in Abuja. He said
“I have instructed DPR that if they discover any fuel station involved in hoarding, they should sell the products for free to customers around there. It is not just sealing the station that is the answer. It is penalizing them when they do these things and I hope the message goes out loud and clear.”
