Obiano’s aide foot hospital bills of kerosene fire victims



SENIOR Special Assistant to Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State on Petroleum and Union Matters, Peter Nwosu has undertaken to pay the hospital bills of kerosene fire victims currently receiving treatments at Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University Teaching Hospital, Amaku, Awka.

  Nwosu said he undertook to foot the payment because of his compassionate disposition for the victims whom he said were unfortunate to have fallen prey to adulterated petroleum products.

  The governor’s aide who paid a sympathetic visit to the kerosene fire victims at Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University Teaching Hospital, Amaku, Awka, said government had consistently warned citizens against patronising roadside petroleum vendors, whom he described as prime suspects for sale of counterfeit petroleum products.

  He said, “we have advised citizens to desist from patronising roadside petroleum vendors because such dealers are not accredited by government to sell petroleum products.

   ” We have also warned that people should stop selling unlicensed products because government will punish those caught selling counterfeit products in Anambra State. Most importantly, all illegal marketers will be arrested and brought to justice.

  “My office is working tirelessly to ensure that counterfeit products are not brought into Anambra State especially during this COVID-19 crisis. His Excellency Governor Willie Obiano is committed to the security and safety of Anambra citizens.”

  Nwosu however charged owners of petrol and gas stations across Anambra to partner the state government to enhance their operations as well as guard against sale and distribution of fake petroleum products to curb unforeseen contingencies arising from such shoddy deals.

   He also wished victims of the kerosene fire rapid recovery and undertook to pay their hospital bills.
