Anambra State government has vowed to bring to book anyone caught in the act of petrol-in- kerosene adulteration within the State as well as those that deal on low quality petroleum products capable of causing explosion.
This is to ensure the safety of Ndi Anambra, especially the vulnerable ones who mostly use those products, especially kerosene for domesticservices.
The State government through the office of Senior Special Assistant to Governor on NUPENG Petroleum and Union Matters Comrade Peter Nwosu revealed that it is out to ensure that adulterated petroleum products and low quality products no longer exist in the State for the safety of Ndi Anambra.
According to him, Anambra State has in the past one month recorded fire incidents resulting from petrol-in-kerosene adulteration, involving about five families, warning that such would not be tolerated henceforth.
Comrade Nwosu charged parents and caregivers to desist from sending under aged children to purchase such sensitive products as they may not be able to remember or differentiate between the products.
The SSA to the Governor warned the dealers of petroleum products and the petrol stations to ensure adequate training for their staff and avoid underaged persons from handling such businesses.
Comrade Nwosu promised to support the families who are victims of the challenging situation and are currently receiving medical services in varioushospitals with their medical bills.
He further revealed that some people involved in such act have already been apprehended and assured they would be prosecuted.
