The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) has sealed some filling stations in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) for various offences.
Some of the filling stations were sealed for selling Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), popularly known as petrol, above the approved pump price and operating without a licence, among other offences.
The Abuja Zonal Operations Controller of the agency, Abubakar Buba, led a team of operatives on a surveillance and monitoring exercise of some petrol stations in the nation’s capital.
He insisted that there was no plan to increase the price of petrol, stressing that there was an abundance of the product in the country.
Buba stated that the exercise would become a daily affair to ensure that infractions in dispensing the product were eradicated.
Highlights of the exercise are captured in the pictures below:
