Fuel Scarcity: DPR Orders Massive Truck-out Of Products To Petrol Stations Nationwide

NNPC-Petrol-TankersThe Department of Petroleum Resources, DPR, yesterday, ordered depots with petroleum products to commence massive truck out of the products to petrol stations across the country.
The DPR, in a statement by its Director, Petroleum Resources, Mr. Mordecai Ladan, also directed petrol stations in strategic locations across the country to run a 24 hour operation throughout the Easter holidays and beyond.
According to Ladan, the DPR had constituted special intelligence monitoring teams nationwide to ensure prompt delivery of petroleum products to filling stations, adding that the teams would enforce government-approved price regime and ensure the right quantity and quality of products are dispensed.
He said, “The DPR, hereby, directs all depots with liftable petroleum products to truck out massively to designated filling stations as programmed while all filling stations in strategic locations shall continue to operate 24 hours during the Easter holidays”.
The DPR director further warned that the N2 million sanction against fuel depots found engaging in overpricing of petroleum products and N100,000 per dispensing pump sanction against filling stations found to be selling above the regulated price and other related offences, are still in force.


  1. Nonsense. We have not seen this directive taking effect and the easter is almost over with suffering. Why is it difficult for nigerians to tell the truth knowing very well that the outcome will interpret itself?
