Breaking: Siting of cooking gas plants in filling stations is illegal – Gov. Obiano’s Aide.

The Anambra state office incharge of NUPENG, Petroleum and union matters has frowned at the rate by which some people setup gas plants in filling stations across the state.

Hon. Peter Nwosu, the SSA to Governor Obiano on NUPENG, Petroleum and Union matters made this known when he recently hosted some members of cooking gas plant owners in his office at Government House, Awka .

In his words; ” Government of Anambra State has prioritised the safety of lives and property of Ndi Anambra and will not hestitate to bring to book any operator who runs cooking gas plant without standard approvals/licences required that guarantee safety and or inside petrol stations”.

” I urge you – the cooking gas operators in filling stations to complement the efforts of the state government by relocating your plants to a much safer environment; this will effectively eliminate the threat posed by the plants to ndi Anambra”, Comr. Nwosu said.

In conclusion, he used the opportunity to invite the group to the upcoming Anambra first Petroleum and Lubricants dealers summit which is scheduled to hold on October 30, 2019 at Prof. Dora Akunyili Women Development Centre, Awka.
