The House of Representatives has directed the Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) to suspend the four companies that recently imported adulterated fuel into the country.
The Group Managing Director (GMD) of the NNPC, Mele Kyari, had named MRS and three other dealers as companies that imported adulterated fuel into Nigeria.
However, MRS on Wednesday denied the claims, explaining that methanol was prohibited in petrol imported into Nigeria.
The House also expressed concern over the effect of that adulterated petrol on vehicles and how the cost of transportation, goods, and service has increased.
In the last one week, Nigerians have expressed their dissatisfaction and anger over the recent fuel scarcity rocking parts of Lagos and Abuja, which is also hitting deeper in other states in the country. This is coming amid controversies of petrol subsidy removal or otherwise in the country.
