Umahi directs immediate shutdown of illegal gas stations

Ebonyi Governor David Umahi has ordered the immediate shutdown of all illegal gas stations in the State.

He said the decision became imperative to forestall the possible outbreak of such incident in Ebonyi State.

In a statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Francis Nweze, the Governor said the closure of the gas stations was apt, especially in this period of harmattan.

He said: “To forestall the possible outbreak of fire in this dry season and ensure that Health Safety and Environment regulation of Ebonyi State conform with National and International best oil and gas field practice.

“The Government of Ebonyi State under the leadership of His Excellency Engr. Chief David Nweze Umahi, has directed immediate shutdown of all illegal gas stations and outlets in the State.

“To this end, all gas stations and outlets must operate with the approval of the Ebonyi State Capital Territory Development Board (ACTDB) and Department of Petroleum Resources, (DPR).”

The Governor, however, threatened to deal decisively with anyone who failed to obey or implement the directive.
