In a statement on Tuesday signed by the Command public relations officer, Mr Ikoh Oche, said the state Commandant of NSCDC Muhammad Bello Muazu has charged all premium motor spirit dealers in the state not to make life difficult for the good people of State by hoarding and escalating the pump prices of the petroleum products.
He said, the Corps has observed with dismay the unwarranted artificial scarcity of petroleum products created by petroleum marketers sequel to the announcement by Mr President of the intention to remove subsidy of the petroleum products.
He opined that this is an act of sabotage and attempt to scuttle the smooth take off of this present administration.
He posited that NSCDC is saddled with the responsibility of ensuring a free supply of petroleum products to the right destination without diversion or hoarding, “as a result the Corps is ready to unearth any filling station found hoarding or causing artificial scarcity”.
He therefore warned all petroleum dealers to desist from making life unbearable for the good people of Zamfara State.
He reiterated that the Corps will go round to ensure that those found culpable face the wrath of the law.
