Anambra state government has sealed a petrol station selling above government approved pump price in Awka.
Speaking to the ABS in Awka, the Chairman, Anambra State Committee on Procurement, Pricing, Regulation and Distribution of Petroleum products, Chief Chris Okonkwo said his team sealed the petrol station located at Kwata Junction Awka, for selling premium motor spirit, otherwise known as petrol above government’s approved pump price of one hundred and sixty-five naira per litre.
Chief Okonkwo regretted that the filling station had been shortchanging Ndi Anambra before they got the hint and sealed it off.
He warned other petrol marketers in Anambra state to desist from adjusting their meters or selling the product above the government regulated pump price, as anybody caught will face the full weight of the law.
Chief Okonkwo urged Ndi Anambra and other residents of the State to report any petrol station selling the product above the approved pump price to the committee for immediate action to be taken.
