Plateau State Government on Thursday said some petrol stations in the state are hoarding petroleum products, with the view to creating artificial scarcity.
The government, however, warned that it would seal any filling stations found guilty.
The state govt. gave the warning in a statement by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Prof. Danladi Atu in Jos.
The government said the actions of the stations were causing untold hardship to commuters and other users of fuel commodities.
According to SSG, the management committee on Road Traffic Administration and Vehicle Inspectors has been mandated to ensure that the act is forestalled.
He said: “The task force is equally directed to seal off any filling station found to be hoarding the products and auction same, please.”
