Daily Trust - - BUSINESS - By Daniel Adugbo

Some fed­eral gov­ern­ment min­istries, de­part­ment and agen­cies as well as se­cu­rity agen­cies have called for the as­sis­tance of the Nat­u­ral Oil and Gas Sup­pli­ers As­so­ci­a­tion of Nige­ria (NOGASA) in dis­cour­ag­ing the dis­tri­bu­tion of adul­ter­ated petroleum prod­ucts.

NOGASA is Nige­ria’s pre­miere or­ga­ni­za­tion of sup­pli­ers, stake­hold­ers and prac­ti­tion­ers in the na­tion’s oil and gas sec­tor dis­tri­bu­tion ser­vice chain.

The re­quest for the sup­port was made at the NOGASA ReI­nau­gu­ra­tion Cer­e­mony in Abuja which saw the emer­gence of Mr. Ben­neth Korie and Al­haji Ab­dul­lahi Idris as pi­o­neer pres­i­dent and vice pres­i­dent of the as­so­ci­a­tion for the next five-years.

Speak­ing specif­i­cally on the need to curb sourc­ing of petroleum prod­ucts from vandalized pipe­lines, the Com­man­dant Gen­eral Nige­ria Se­cu­rity and Civil De­fence Corps (NSCDC) Ab­dul­lahi Gana Muham­madu who was rep­re­sented by As­sis­tant Com­man­dant, Gen­eral Op­er­a­tions Aminu Ab­dul­lahi Ko­far­soro said Il­le­gal deal­ing in petroleum prod­uct, bunker­ing, van­dal­i­sa­tion and oil theft were crit­i­cal is­sues the gov­ern­ment was seek­ing part­ner­ship with the as­so­ci­a­tion.
