Mrs. Omotayo Adeola, Special Adviser to the State Governor on Industry, Trade and Investment in a meeting with State Petroleum Task Force Committee and representatives of the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers on Tuesday issued the warning in Ado-Ekiti.
Adeola said the decision had become imperative in order to alleviate the hardship people had been experiencing as a result of the current cash crunch in the country.
She implored residents to lodge their complaints against errant filling station operators via WhatsApp number 08077772323.
“Residents could make a video call through the above number to report such erring operators for prompt action by the State Petroleum Task Force,” she said.
In separate interviews after the meeting, the Chairman, Ekiti State Petroleum Task Force Committee, Mr Ayodeji Adesokan and the NUPENG Chairman, Mr Olumide Jegede, appealed to petroleum marketers to comply with the directive.
They warned that erring petroleum stations would be sanctioned by the government.
