Nigerian NSCDC to monitor petrol stations amid fuel scarcity
« on: April 04, 2016, 10:08:40 AM »

In a move aimed at curtailing the activities of black market operators, the Commandant General of Nigeria Security & Civil Defence Corps ( NSCDC) Alhaji Abdullahi Gana Muhammadu has ordered a 24-hour surveillance of petrol stations by the Officers of the corps.
Officials of the NSCDC would therefore be assigned to petrol stations across the country in order to carry out the directive.

Gana gave this order immediately after he met with the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Mr. Ibe Kachikwu at NNPC tower Abuja on Thursday.


He handed down the order as widespread fuel scarcity in the country continues to bite hard.

Government has also outlawed selling of petrol on roadsides and directed the NSCDC official to arrest and prosecute offenders.

Briefing journalists on the development, the Commandant General said that before the latest directive, NSCDC had carried out 24-hour surveillance on oil terminals where crude oil is being loaded and on the rigs where drilling operations take place.

He said 2,800 officers have been deployed in Abuja metropolis to ease the operation of NNPC and that officers of the corps have also been deployed in the same vein in states like, Delta, Edo, Lagos, Ogun, Osun and Oyo state.
