.. Forces Stations to Dispense Products

The Special Taskforce set up by the Osun State Government to monitor the Petroleum Scarcity has raided filling stations in Osogbo Federal Constituency.

The Taskforce which has the Chief of Staff to the Governor, Alhaji Kazeem Akinleye as the chairman, went around filling stations in Osogbo, Ifón, Ilobu today to ensure that marketers do not hoard the products while people suffer from petrol scarcity.

The Taskforce team which consists of Commissioner for Government House and Protocol, Honourable Soji Ajeigbe, Commissioner for Youths, Hon. Moshood Olagunju has two Special Advisers to the Governor, Hon. Babatunde Badmus and Alhaji Nurudeen Emiloju Among others.

At Muhy International Investment filling station at Ayekale, the committee ordered the manager to start dispensing as it was discovered to be hoarding about 800 liters in its PMS tank.

Addressing the petrol marketers and members of the public waiting to buy Petrol products, Hon. Soji Ajeigbe appreciated the managers of the filling stations who were seen dispensing the products.

According to him, the task force was not out to shut down or witch-hunt any petroleum marketer but to ensure that any station found hoarding the product started dispensing the products immediately to the members of the public.

The team also took time to address members of the public on the need to be orderly and law-abiding assuring that the state government is doing everything possible to facilitate more allocation of PMS to the state from the depots in Lagos and Port Harcourt.

Members of the public who were happy at the activities of the Taskforce were full of appreciation for the state government for being responsive to the public cries.

It was carnival-like from Agunbelewo where okada riders started following the task force from one filling station to another as those who were not selling before started dispensing the products ahead of the task force’s visit to their stations

The Taskforce inspected PMS tanks of the stations that were not dispensing the products to ascertain that they were not handling the product.

Parts of the stations visited include Major and Independent marketers as well as NNPC retail stations in Osogbo, Olorunda, Irepodun, and Orolu local Governments.

Members of the Taskforce include Honourable Niyi Olaniyan, S A policy Coordination, and security agents
