Cross River Government Warns Petrol Station to Revert Pump Price to N65

The Cross River State government has warned filling stations selling fuel at exorbitant prices to immediately revert to the standard price of N65 per litre.

This warning became necessary as there has been fuel scarcity for the past three weeks in most parts of the state due to hoarding and trans border sale in Cameroon.

This was contained in a statement the Special Adviser to the state governor on Petroleum Monitoring and Chairman of joint taskforce on Petroleum, Mr Peter Banks saying any filling station or marketer that does not comply with the directive would be sanctioned.

He said the marketers are taking advantage of the people thereby causing more harm to the state.

He noted that despite warnings from the federal government and the National Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers, NUPENG, filling stations have refused to adhere.

The taskforce Chairman lamented that tank farms and filling stations are hoarding fuel thereby creating artificial scarcity in the state.

Meanwhile, there are reports that many fuel dealers in parts of Bakassi council have been buying fuel from local spots or depot and selling it to Cameroon.
