Enugu Govt. Warns Marketers Against Fuel Hike



Enugu State government has observed with dismay the inconsiderate and unnecessary hike in petroleum products in the state by petroleum marketers.

In a statement issued on Tuesday in Enugu, the State Commissioner for Special Duties, Ajogwu Sunday Emeka, made it clear that the ministry will not hesitate to sanction any petrol station that violates government directive.

The indiscriminate price hike, which was a fallout of the proposed strike action by the Nigerian Association of Road Transport Owners, has continued to persist even after the said strike action never took place.


It said it is unfortunate that marketers in the state have continued to sell petroleum products at an outrageous price. This is most unpatriotic and unacceptable to the government and people of Enugu State.

The government directs all petroleum marketers to revert to the status quo ante, that is, the price that existed before the sudden hike warning that grave consequences await anyone who flouted the directive.

“Government is in contact with the leaders of the IPMAN to ensure that Ndi Enugu are not shortchanged by individuals who are merely profiteering from a situation that never took place.
