FG Set To Deregulate Fuel Price

Paul Osu, DPR’s head of public affairs, gave the assurance in a statement issued on Friday in Lagos.

The federal government declared July 20 and 21 as public holidays to mark the celebration.

Mr Osu added that there was enough product nationwide and advised marketers against hoarding and creating artificial scarcity under any guise.

He said the DPR would intensify its monitoring and surveillance of petroleum products outlets to ensure compliance with quality, quantity, integrity, and safety of operations in line with its regulatory mandate.

Mr Osu advised consumers to report any infraction, such as under-dispensing of products, to any DPR office nationwide.

He also reiterated the DPR’s commitment to safety and advised consumers to observe all necessary safety protocols in handling petroleum products.

Mr Osu also said the regulatory agency would continue to initiate appropriate initiatives to enable business and create opportunities for investors and stakeholders in Nigeria’s oil and gas industry.
