Ondo to demolish petrol stations

Post  Admin on Mon Jul 01, 2013 10:16 pm

Hundreds of petrol stations built contrary to regulations and specifications in Ondo State may soon be demolished, as the state government has set up a commission of enquiry into the siting of petroleum outlets in the state.

The body, known as the State Regulations Commission of Enquiry into Matters Relating to the Development of Petrol Retail Outlets in Ondo State, was said to have been set up as a result of various complaints lodged by the people of the state and government agencies over location of petrol stations in various towns across the state.

The commission, headed by a Permanent Secretary, Mr. Dare Aragbaye, had gone round the major towns of the state to assess the level of compliance with such regulations while it had also been meeting with the owners of petrol stations in the state.

Briefing newsmen at the end of the meeting in Akure, recently, Aragbaye said about 747 filling stations were registered with the government, while only 342 of them had submitted their files with the commission.

According to him, the commission, upon its visit to the locations of the filling stations, discovered that many of them flouted the regulations and specifications given to them before they sited their filling stations.

The commission noted that many of the petrol stations were located within residential areas against the regulations given to them by the state Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development, while many failed to comply with space specification.
