Stakeholders in the petrol distribution chain got a marching order yesterday from the Department of State Services (DSS).
They must end the lingering petrol scarcity in two days, failing which the appropriate action would be applied.
The association, which alleged discrimination against its members in sourcing foreign exchange (forex), claimed that selling petrol at approved pump price will send them out of business.
They argued that they source forex at black market rates, whereas their Major Marketers Association of Nigeria (MOMAN) counterpart have assess at the official rate.
But the DSS spokesman said the Service could not fold its arms to allow some individuals or group to destabilise the country.
He spoke with reporters in Abuja after a meeting between the stakeholders and the leadership of the DSS.
He said that after the expiration of the ultimatum, the Department would commence a nationwide operation to ensure that the products are made available.
