NAIRA CRUNCH: Ekiti To Clamp On Fuel Stations Refusing PoS Transactions

0 107

The Ekiti State Government has threatened to sanction filling stations that reject Point-of-Sale transactions owing  to the current cash scarcity in the country.


The Special Adviser to the State Governor on Industry, Trade and Investment, Mrs Omotayo Adeola, gave the  warning at a meeting with the State Petroleum Task Force Committee and representatives of the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers on Tuesday in Ado-Ekiti.



Adeola said the decision had become imperative in order to alleviate the hardship people had been experiencing as a result of the current cash crunch in the country.


She implored residents to lodge their complaints against errant filling station operators via WhatsApp number  08077772323.


“Residents could make a video call through the above number to report such erring operators for prompt action by the State Petroleum Task Force,” she said.


In separate interviews after the meeting, the Chairman, Ekiti State Petroleum Task Force Committee, Mr Ayodeji Adesokan and the NUPENG Chairman, Mr Olumide Jegede, appealed to petroleum marketers to comply with the directive.


They warned that erring petroleum stations would be sanctioned by the government.
