Ogun State government has put a temporary ban on the sales of industrial gas in the state, as a result of the recent multiple gas explosion.
This was made known by the State Commissioner for Special Duties and Intergovernmental Affairs, Femi Ogunbanwo during a stakeholders’ meeting in Abeokuta, in order to find a lasting solution to the problem.
He noted that all major stakeholders in the gas sector were expected to abide by the directives, saying, “Anyone found guilty of selling adulterated gas products or violating safety protocols would have the full weight of the law to contend with”.
He reiterated that Ogun State Governor, Dapo Abiodun had been in consultations with the federal authorities, charging relevant agencies of government and the Nigerian Police to move around the nooks and crannies of the State, investigate and bring to book whoever found culpable of any sharp practices or negligence that could cause further occurrence.
