DSS Gives NNPC, IPMAN, Other Stakeholders 48 Hours To Resolve Fuel Scarcity Or Face Arrests

The Department of State Services (DSS) on Thursday intervened in the ongoing fuel scarcity across the country as they gave a 48-hour ultimatum to Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) Limited, Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) and other stakeholders in the oil sector to resolve the ongoing crisis.

The secret police threatened that it would launch manhunt if after 48 hours, there are still queues at filling stations across the country.

Spokesman of the secret police, Peter Afunanya, stated this while addressing journalists at the headquarters of the service in Abuja shortly after the Director-General of DSS, Yusuf Bichi, met with the stakeholders in the industry.

He said the stakeholders agreed to end fuel scarcity nationwide, saying all DSS commands had been placed on red alert and would commence operations to bring defaulters to book.

The stakeholders who attended the meeting apart from the NNPC and IPMAN include officials of Major Oil Marketers Association of Nigeria (MOMAN) as well as Depot and Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (DAPMAN).

Others were Nigerian Association of Road Transport Owners (NARTO), Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) and Petroleum Tanker Drivers (PTD).
