THE Department of Petroleum Resources, (DPR) has issued a three month ultimatum to unregistered and illegal gas dealers in Katsina State to regularise their dealership or face possible sealing off of their business premises

The DPR Branch Controller in Katsina State, Engineer Aminu Sanusi, told The Nation that the renewed campaign is targeted at instilling sanity into the gas dealership business and checkmate wanton gas explosions and the unnecessary loss of lives and properties in the state.

He said, ”Whenever we discover an illegal gas outlet, we usually give them Letter Of Demand Of Explanation and insist they get registered. Some of them are ignorant while some needed to be guided as to what is expected from them ”

”They are supposed to have our letters and certificates indicating that they are registered with us. Some are in the process of trying to register their shops while others are currently updating their papers and upgrading to other required facilities to guarantee the security and safety of lives and properties.”

He further assured that the agency will engage the Association of Gas Resellers, Katsina State chapter in the renewed drive as part of awareness campaign, enlightenment and disabuse of the minds of the people from thinking that they can just start gas reselling without getting the needed approvals.

He said “We are relating with them and are engaging them so they can help us sanitise the gas dealership process.”

He assured that the plan is not to dispossess them of their jobs but help them prosper.
