Unhappy with long queue of vehicles surfacing at some filling stations in the state, the state commandant, Nigeria Security And Civil Defence Corps Kano command, Commandant Adamu Idris Zakari fsi has approved the setting up of a monitoring team that will supervise and monitor the sales of premium motor spirit (PMS) in the state.
In a statement signed by the public relations officer of the Command DSC Ibrahim Idris Abdullahi ,the monitoring team has been mandated among other things to go through the manifest issued by NNPC Depot on daily basis and make sure PMS meant to be delivered to filling stations reach its destination safely and is sold to the general public at the approved government rate of 162/165 per litre.
The NSCDC, Kano command frowns at hoarding and diversion of petroleum products as well as sales of the product above the pump price of 162/165 per litre.
Operatives of the Corps including under cover officers are on alert and will be on surveillance, if anybody is caught in the heinous acts of diversion/ hoarding and selling above approved pump price will be promptly arrested and made to face justice.
