Lagos Will Control Actions Major, Independent Petroleum Marketers.

The State Government of Lagos has started to take action to regulate the activities of major and Independent Petroleum Marketers operating along major roads and traffic-prone areas within the State in light of the persistent fuel shortage that has persisted throughout the Country and has continued to affect the free flow of traffic in Lagos.

According to a statement from the Ministry of Transportation, the action is necessary to curb the indiscriminate actions of drivers waiting in lines to buy gasoline who frequently park irresponsibly on roads and bridges, obstructing the free flow of traffic.

The announcement also revealed that big and Independent Petroleum Marketers, whose filling stations are located on important highways and locations vulnerable to traffic, will henceforth be allowed to operate only between the hours of 9am to 4pm daily, pending when the fuel shortage crisis subsides.

It added that the Lagos State Traffic Management Authority (LASTMA), Vehicle Inspection Service (VIS), Transport Operations Compliance Unit (TOCU) and other Law Enforcement Agencies have been charged to ensure seamless flow of traffic across the State, while admonishing all major and Independent Petroleum Marketers to comply with this directive or be sanctioned.
