The Senate on Tuesday urged the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) to clamp down on illegal roadside retailers of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG), popularly called cooking gas.
It said such retailers should include those who either “operate without a valid licence or who operate within residential areas, or licensed plants who lack basic and standard minimum requirements like fire extinguishers and detectors, water sprinkler, temperature gauge, pressure and volume measuring equipment, among others”.
It was stated in the memoranda that there should be charter status for the Nigerian Society of Engineers.
The body also submitted that the Engineering Ministry, Department & Agencies (MDAs) be headed by engineers.
The NSE also stated that in compliance with Standard Organisation of Nigeria (SON), there should be constitutional provision for quality check of goods imported into the country, even for local manufacturers as well.
