    Invalid licence: DPR seals 37 fuel stations in Akwa Ibom

    The department of petroleum resources (DPR), Eket Akwa Ibom state, south-south Nigeria has sealed 37 unlicensed filling stations in three months.

    Bassey Nkanga, operations controller for DPR made this disclosure Tuesday at Eket local government area of the state.

    His words: “Any fuel station without DPR’s valid licence would not be allowed to sell petrol to members of the public”.

     According to him, three filling stations violated DPR’s seal order and would be made to pay the sum of N1 million each as fine for their offences.

    “In the last three months we have sealed over 37 filling stations for illegality and three filling stations were caught violating DPR’s seal order in Akwa Ibom”.

    “We have sealed them and they will not be opened for three months until they pay a fine of N1 million each,” Nkanga said.
    However, Nkanga advised marketers to desist from violating DPR’s seal order or they would face the full wrath of the law.

    He called on the marketers to regularize their licence to avoid clampdown by the department.
