Just In: Reps Ask NNPC To Suspend Companies That Imported Adulterated Fuel



Members of the House of Representatives have called on the Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Limited to suspend the four companies which recently imported adulterated fuel into the country.

The lawmakers also mandated its committee on petroleum downstream to investigate the release and sale of the off-spec Premium Motor Spirit by petrol stations across the country, to bring the culprits to book.

The issue was raised on Thursday as a motion of urgent public importance by the Chief Whip of the House, Mohammed Monguno.

The House also expressed concern over the effect of that adulterated petrol on vehicles and how the cost of transportation, goods, and service has increased.

Some of the lawmakers lamented that the system is completely compromised, considering the processes which the fuel must go through before reaching the fuel stations.

They asked that Nigerians whose vehicles and equipment were directly affected by the adulterated fuel be compensated.
