The National Petroleum Authority (NPA) has confiscated 10,000 litres of diesel in its recent crackdown on sellers of poor quality fuel in the Western Region.

The exercise focused on tabletop vendors of petrol and diesel in Takoradi Metropolis, Shama and Ahanta West Districts where fuel was being sold in jerrycans, barrels and gallons.

According to the Acting Chief Executive of NPA, Hassan Tampoli these dealers have no permits from the NPA to retail petroleum products.

“They didn’t have any documents to show that they received the products from a duly licensed oil marketing company, which clearly showed that they were getting the products from unauthorized sources. Upon further interrogation they informed our officers that they were getting the products from Takoradi Tanker Yard. At the Tanker yard there was no documentation to that effect, we all do know that ignorance of the law is not an excuse so we proceeded to confiscate all the products that we seized and that’s about 10,000 litres of products which we currently have sitting at the offices of NPA in Takoradi.“
