DPR seals five Adamawa petrol stations for under-dispensing
The state acting Controller of the DPR, Dr. Laminga Mohammed, who was furious with the management of the stations over what he called gross under-dispensing, threatened to withdraw their operational licenses for “sabotage to the present administration’s efforts to improve the economy and people’s standard of living.”
The DPR coordinator who sealed the five filling stations on Friday in different local government areas in southern Adamawa during a routine monitoring exercise, emphasized that the DPR would not fold its hands and watch marketers sabotage the economy of the country and cheat Nigerians.
Mohammed who vented his anger on the operational staff of a particular station told the staff that their act was not different from robbery, as they collect money from customers without giving them what they pay for.
He said, “I wonder why people engage in this unholy practice to make money. Without criminally adjusting your dispensing pump, you can still make good profit, so why cheating people of their hard earned money?
“In this filling station, based on the meter we tested now, if you buy 10 liters, you get only eight liters, so a buyer loses two liters. It is unacceptable.”
The acting controller who called on members of the public and motorists to report any sharp practices in any filling station to DPR for quick action, said the DPR needed the cooperation of the public to tackle malpractices at filling stations.
