A filling station
By Ibrahim Shuaibu
The Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) in Kano has sealed up and sanctioned 10 filling stations in Kano and Jigawa states for selling above the government-approved petroleum pump-price of N97 per litre.
This measure, according to the Operations Controller of DPR in Kano, Alhaji Sayyadi Suleiman Abubakar, will sanitize the operation of filling stations in the two states during the Christmas and New Year period.
Alhaji Abubakar told reporters on Tuesday that petroleum operators have also started importing diesel and kerosene from the neighbouring Niger Republic into the country, because they are all deregulated products, while petrol is yet to be approved for importation into the country.
