Any Fuel Station Found Guilty Of Hoarding Fuel Shall Be Sealed Off And Operators Prosecuted –Adeleke

The Governor of Osun State, Ademola Adeleke has threatened to take actions against any fuel station found hoarding fuel in Osun state, Punch News reports. The governor’s recent comment came after it was published by some news outlets that queues have started resurfacing at different fuel stations across Nigeria.

Recall that the new President of Nigeria, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in his Inaugural speech, mentioned that his government will not be subscribing to the continuity of fuel subsidy and that he is going to remove fuel subsidy very soon. This comment is believed to have caused the resurfacing of queues at fuel stations as some of these fuel stations have refused to sell their products.

While speaking about what he will do against fuel hoarders in Osun State, Ademola Adeleke said that such fuel stations will be sealed off and the operators of such fuel stations will be prosecuted. He said that it is callous for anyone to create artificial fuel scarcity as his Government is not going to entertain such actions in Osun state.

He also disclosed that a committee has been set up to monitor the sales of fuel in Osun state. The statement from the Osun government reads: “Any fuel station found guilty of hoarding fuel to create artificial scarcity shall be sealed off and operators prosecuted for the crime of economic sabotage.

This deliberate action is not only inhumane but unpatriotic and will not be allowed by the government. To this end, the Special Monitoring Team on fuel scarcity set up by His Excellency, Governor Ademola Nurudeen Jackson Adeleke headed by the Chief of Staff, Hon Kazeem Akinleye is still effective and shall not condone any form of economic sabotage.

As from today, May 30, 2023, the Committee shall begin special monitoring of all the filling stations across the state in collaboration with law enforcement agencies and other stakeholders.”
