The Department of Petroleum Resources in Cross River, Nigeria, has assured residents in the state and beyond that there is enough fuel to serve them during and after the Christmas season.

DPR Operations Controller of the state, Mr Sircham Mohammed-Musa, gave this assurance on December 19 in Calabar, Nigeria, during the surveillance of some filling stations to ensure compliance with DPR guidelines.

Mohammed-Musa explained that the surveillance was carried out to ensure that filling stations operating in the state were selling at the government-approved price and also dispensing the product accurately.

He told News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), while inspecting a mainland oil and gas depot, that the agency had issued a warning to marketers to abstain from any form of hoarding or they will face sanctions.
