In spite of the Federal Government’s directive that a litre of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), also known as petrol, be sold for N86.50K, most petrol stations operating in Delta State are yet to comply with the order with many filling stations reluctant to adjust their pump prices. The same applies to Imo State.

The Federal Government recently slashed the pump price of petrol from N87 per litre to N86.50K.

Many of the station managers declined comments when they were asked why they were selling above pump price, with long queues persisting in most filling stations in the state.

Some customers gave the opinion that the Federal Government needs to put measures in place that will enforce implementation of the directive.

The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR), through its Technical Assistant to the Zonal Operations Controller in Warri, Mr Victor Owhodiasa, warned that defaulters will be appropriately punished.

In Imo, residents and commuters in the state capital Owerri are complaining over the hardship they face in the hands of the Independent Petroleum Marketers who still sell petrol at N150 per litre. Some sell at the rate of N125 per litre while others sell at 145 per litre and above, apart from the NNPC mega station that sell at N86.50 per litre which has resulted to a long queue at the mega station.

Disappointed residents have called on the DPR to live up to expectations and do its job of enforcing Federal Government’s directive before things get worse.
