NNPC warns petrol stations under-dispensing petroleum products

Managing Director, Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Retail, Yemi Adetunji, on Tuesday warned filling stations under-dispensing petroleum products to desist, saying the corporation had zero-tolerance for such irregularity.
Adetunji gave the warning at a news briefing in Abuja on what the corporation was doing to reduce incidence of under-dispensing oil marketers with NNPC brand.
“One of the key factors in retail business is that customers get value for what they pay for. We have a zero-tolerance for under-dispensing.
“We have a network development and control section that monitors under-dispensing, policing the sales and the dealers. We have sanctions if they are caught.
“It gets to a point where contracts of dealers will be terminated,’’ Adetunji said.
Prodded for instances where action was taken against erring dealers, he said “for stations that take our brand as theirs, we have cases in court.
“For those we have terminated relationships with, we are following through with the process until we totally disengage.
“Our brand equity in 15 years is one of the highest in the country and we can’t allow any dealer to toy with that.
“We are one of the companies declaring profits in the industry,’’ he said.
Adetunji urged the public to report any filling station suspected to be under-dispensing fuel products or any other shady deal, and gave out contacts, including telephone numbers, for such report.
