The Kwara State House of Assembly has stopped the construction of new petrol stations in the state capital. The Speaker, Dr. Ali Ahmad, who gave the directive suspending the project, said the adhoc committee constituted to investigate the matter discovered that laws guiding the establishment of petrol stations are being violated.

He said the Assembly will not fold its arms and watch the lives and property of people being threatened by a few individuals "who are selfish and desperate to make money".

The lawmakers also ordered operators of illegal filling stations in Ilorin metropolis to appear before them. The stations were summoned for failing to secure necessary approval. Chairman of the ad-hoc committee, Barrister Kamaldeen Fagbemi, lamented what he called the indiscriminate construction of filling stations in residential areas, saying the action is dangerous. The lawmakers said fair hearing will be given to all parties concerned before a definite position is taken on the matter.
