N86.50 fuel price: Motorists blast DPR officials

Worried by the refusal of independent marketers in Enugu and Anambra states to comply with the new N86.5 per litre pump price for fuel as directed by the Federal Government with effect from January 1, residents of the two states have vented their anger on officials of Department of Petroleum Resources, DPR, for not enforcing the new pricing regime for fuel within their areas.

A motorist in Enugu regretted that DPR officials had been moving about enforcing the new pricing system and sanctioning defaulters in other parts of the country, but in the South-East geopolitical zone, especially Enugu and Anambra states, it had remained business as usual for the marketers, who continued to sell fuel at N150 per litre.

He challenged relevant authorities to take necessary action on the matter as it seems that DPR officials in the two states had been compromised by the marketers.
