DSS to End Lingering Fuel Scarcity


The Department of State Service (DSS) has given stakeholders in the fuel supply chain a 48 hour deadline to restore to normalcy the supply of petroleum products to the officially approved rates across the country.

Spokesperson of the DSS, Dr. Peter Afunanya has said at the expiration of the set time, anyone found acting as a saboteur to the supply of petroleum products in the country will be treated as a threat to national security by the agency.

He also stated that, henceforth the DSS is to carry out operations across the country to fish out those obstructing the distribution of petroleum products to Nigerians at the approved official rate to face the weight of the law.

According to him, “Similarly, the NNPC agreed to sell at an ex-depot price. It also agreed to decentralize distributions to impact positively marketers. On our part, we agreed to provide security for the seamless distribution of the products across the country. The distribution must improve and all challenges must be eliminated in the next 48 hours after which as a matter of urgency we will carry out operations across the country not minding whose ox is gored.”

He further stated that oil marketers will be operating for 24 hours on daily basis to ensure that demands are met. Meanwhile, tanker operators will be on deck to ensure the lifting of the products.
