Sokoto to sanction filling stations for hoarding fuel

Sokoto to sanction filling stations for hoarding fuel

Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal yes­terday warned own­ers of filling stations found to be hoarding fuel in order to create artificial scarcity or is selling above official rate.
He said the government will revoke the Certificate of Occupancy (CofO) of any filling station found wanting.
The governor’s threat fol­lowed the excruciating fuel scarcity bedeviling Sokoto town and environs which has been lingering for over two weeks.
Speaking when he in­spected sale of fuel at some filling stations in Sokoto Sunday, Tambuwal said government will not fold its arms and watch unscru­pulous marketers hold the people to ransom.
He said the supply of the commodity from the Ni­geria National Petroleum Cooperation (NNPC) has not altered, as such, no one should create artificial scar­city to burden the people.
