Ekiti govt summons petroleum marketers over hoarding

The Governor of Ekiti State, Mr Biodun Oyebanji, has cautioned filling stations and marketers in the state against hoarding of petroleum products following President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s inaugural speech on Monday.

The Governor urged the marketers to await further directives on the implementation of the planned subsidy removal by the Federal Government and avoid actions capable of inflicting hardship on the citizens.

To this end, Oyebanji summoned the leadership of the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) to a meeting in his office by 4 pm today.

According to the Governor, heavy sanctions await any filling station or marketer found hoarding petroleum products or involved in the arbitrary increase in prices of petroleum products in the state.

He urged the citizens of the state to go about their daily activities peacefully and avoid any rancorous situation.
