DPR Seals 7 Filling Stations In Umuahia
The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR), Abia State, on Monday, sealed seven filling stations in Umuahia, the Abia State capital, for selling Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) above the government-approved price of N145 per litre.
Manager Operations of DRR Umuahia Field Office, Engr. Ibinabo Jack, said that they were able to seal seven filling stations that were selling PMS above the government approved price.
“In our effort today, we were able to place a seal on seven stations for selling outside the regulated pump price of N145:00. We found them selling at N185:00 to N190:00,” he said.
When asked if there are other measures put in place for those who may go back to sell higher than N145, he said that DPR would mete out more stringent measures to those who would go back to sell the product higher than authorised.
