Profiteering: DPR suspends import permit of Capital Oil, others

Invest In Mutual Funds Like A Hero
The Department of Petroleum Resources has suspended fuel import permit of Capital Oil, Sahara Petroleum and Folawiyo Petroleum for three months for alleged profiteering.
This was contained in a statement issued by Abimbola Ogan, the DPR spokesperson, on Friday in Lagos.
Other companies whose permit were suspended are Samon Petroleum, Fynefield Petroleum in Calabar and Stallionaire Petroleum in Lagos.
The regulatory body alleged that the companies sold fuel above the government regulated price of N77.66k at the depot.
The DPR also slammed N10 million fine on each of the companies and directed the Petroleum Product Pricing Regulatory Agency to revoke the companies’ allocations.
The DPR said it had put in place all necessary machineries to curb all incidents of profiteering, hoarding and other unwholesome practices by operators.
“The public is hereby advised to shun panic buying and report any noticeable infraction to the DPR office nearest to them,” the statement said.
