Osun state government on Tuesday issued serious warning to all the petroleum marketers in the state allegedly hoarding fuel in the state to desist or face the wrath of law.

This was contained in a release issued and signed by the chairman, Special Monitoring Team on Fuel Scarcity set up by the state government, Alhaji Kazeem Akinleye.

According to the release, hoarding PMS as a result of the proclamation of President Bola Tinubu on removing subsidy by the petroleum marketers in the state is a deliberate attempt of melting hardship on the people of the state.

The release reads;” The attention of the Osun State Government has been drawn to the deliberate hoarding of PMS by the fuel dealers within the State as a result of the statement from the Inaugural Speech of the new President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu on the removal of fuel subsidy, thereby causing unnecessary hardship for the people in the State”

“This deliberate action is not only inhumane but unpatriotic and will not be allowed by the government. To this end, the Special Monitoring Team on fuel scarcity set up by His Excellency, Governor Ademola Nurudeen Jackson Adeleke headed by the Chief of Staff, Hon Kazeem Akinleye is still effective and shall not condone any form of economic sabotage”

“As from today, 30th May 2023, the Committee shall begin special monitoring of all the filling stations across the state in collaboration with law enforcement agencies and other stakeholders”

“Any fuel station found guilty of hoarding fuel to create artificial scarcity shall be sealed off and operators prosecuted for crime of economic sabotage”
