The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) has intensified its petroleum products monitoring and surveillance activities towards ensuring a hitch free Christmas and New Year celebrations in Abuja and environs.
The DPR Zonal Operations Controller, Abuja, Buba Abubakar in a statement on Wednesday charged the general public to avoid panic buying and go about their normal businesses.
He said the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has assured the nation of availability of petroleum products that can sustain the nation throughout the yuletide and beyond.
“Therefore, DPR hereby warns all Petroleum Products Marketers to desist from any form of profiteering, ranging from petroleum products diversion, hoarding, adulteration, under-dispensing, overpricing or any other sharp practice to avoid severe sanctions that might be meted on any defaulting marketer,” he said.
Daily Trust reports that the DPR had in August heightened surveillance on petrol stations to forestall likely ember-month fuel challenges nationwide.
To this end, several teams were deployed by the Abuja office to ensure enforcement and compliance of petroleum operating guidelines within FCT and environs.
