Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun State has taken steps to put an end to the recent cases of gas explosions in Abeokuta, the state capital.
Abiodun, who commiserated with families of the victims of the recent gas explosions, warned against adulteration of the product.
In a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin, the governor said he had summoned a stakeholders’ meeting for Friday to discuss the situation.
The stakeholders’ meeting, according to Somorin, is part of the measures being taken to find a lasting solution to the problem.
DAILY POST reports that the meeting would be attended by dealers, cylinder manufacturers and retailers in that sector.
“The Governor warned that anyone found guilty of selling adulterated gas products or violating safety protocols in the state would be visited with the full weight of the law.
“Gov. Abiodun, who has been in consultations with Federal authorities to find a solution to the recent incidents, said no stone will be left unturned to stop the such development.
“He has also directed law enforcement agencies and environmental and safety personnel to move round all the nooks and crannies of the state to investigate and bring to book those found culpable of any sharp practices or negligence that could have caused the gas explosions.
“The governor also warned business owners against violating safety protocols guiding the location of businesses in residential areas as they would be prosecuted if they are caught,” the statement concluded.
