Bad Fuel: President Buhari, Reps Talk Tough, Say Heads Must Roll

President Muhammadu Buhari and the House of Representatives talked tough yesterday over the bad fuel imported in to the country, saying those behind it must be held accountable.

In fact, the House at its plenary, said heads must roll, if the situation was to be averted in future.

The President and lawmakers’ positions came on a day marketers distanced themselves from  controversies around who brought the bad fuel into the country.

It will be recalled that the Nigeria National Petroleum Company, NNPA, Limited had late Wednesday night, listed four marketers as those responsible for bringing in the bad fuel.

This is even as Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, alleged that the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, was shielding its leaders behind the importation of the product.

Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, said in a statement yesterday that President Buhari  ordered that producers and providers of the bad product be held accountable for sub-standard services.

He said the President’s order came on the heels of outcry over importation of  adulterated fuel that had caused damages to car engines.

According to him, the President also gave “directives to relevant government agencies to take every step, in line with the laws of the country, to ensure the respect and protection of consumers against market abuses and social injustices.”
