Experts in fuel refining and storage have observed that about 90 per cent of premium of motor spirit, PMS, popularly called petrol sold to consumers in the federal capital territory are bad fuel.
They noted that the adulteration of petroleum products has led to consumers’ vehicles, generators and other equipment having problems.
It is in a bid to overcome some of these challenges faced by consumers in the use of petroleum products that the International Institute for Petroleum, Energy Law and Policy (IIPELP) in collaboration with the Consumers Protection Council (CPC) organized a one-day familiarization workshop on the Strategic Management of Fuel for various organizations across different sectors of the Nigerian economy.
IIPELP Vice President Allen Martin said at the workshop that the body in conjunction with the CPC will start conducting audits of local petrol stations throughout Nigeria starting with Abuja.
Director General of CPC Dupe Atoki, said great focus should be in reducing the risk of petrol contamination and ensure fuel is safe for the end user.
