Fuel dealers want gov’t to enforce cashless transactions

With Covid 19 cases continuing to surge, dealers in the fuel business have called out government to enforce cashless transactions at pumps. The dealers are concerned of exposure to covid – 19 when handling cash and want government intervention.

In all presidential addresses on covid 19 regulations, fuel stations have been given leeway to continue operating but following the standard operating procedures.

But with Covid 19 infections on the rise nationally, dealers in the fuel industry are concerned petrol stations could be the next epicenter for the spread of Covid – 19 due to cash transactions as money exchanges hands without using sanitizers.

The customers Let Out News spoke to equally showed concern, calling for alternatives to reduce cash transactions at fuel stations.

Otim Gilbert the Marketing Manager Stabex and other stakeholders want Government to join the cause and promote the use of cashless transactions like fuel cards and mobile money that reduce contact between customers and pump attendants.

In a bid to avoid covid 19 at Stabex fuel stations, workers are clad in gloves, face masks and are armed with sanitizers on all pumps.

With sales going down as the effects of the inter district travel take shape, stakeholders in the fuel industry hope want more from government.
