Oyo Commissioner task DPR to Sanction Erring Marketers

Oyo state commissioner of Works and Transport, Prof. Daud Sangodoyin has made a call to the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) to start monitoring petroleum stations in the State and sanction marketers found hoarding the product.

He made this call on Monday while speaking as a guest on a radio program on Fresh FM (105.9) in Ibadan.
Ogundoyin asserted that the scarcity of fuel which began on Sunday was artificial as there was no reason for most of the marketers not to sell to the people.

As at the time of filing this report, it was observed that most fuel stations in Ibadan were not selling fuel to motorists while those selling experienced long queues which also contributed to traffic gridlock in some parts of the metropolis.

He said, “As the government, we are doing all we can to make life easy for the people of Oyo State and this is reflected in the number of infrastructural projects around the State, for some people to be creating artificial scarcity of fuel for pecuniary reasons if wrong and inhuman.

“The Department of Petroleum Resources should as a matter of urgency swing into action and arrest the situation, they have the work of monitoring cut out for them and this is the moment to bring those marketers sabotaging government by hoarding products to book.”
