Federal Government reduces Petrol Pump Price

The federal government has announced the reduction of petrol pump price from N168 to N162.44 per liter. The announcement came on Tuesday, December 8.

Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige announced at the end of a meeting with witlaborur leaders, where he said the new pump price will be effective from December 14.

A technical committee has been set up to ensure price stability in the industry, and it is expected that will report back to the larger house on January 25.

The technical committee was also given the task of appraising the market forces and other things that would ensure stability in the industry.

The Minister however insisted that the price reduction was not meant to suspend deregulation, because it did not affect the price of crude oil but on areas where the NNPC as the main importer had agreed that it could cut costs like freight and demurrage costs.

Ngige said;

“Our discussion was fruitful and the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation which is the major importer and marketers of petroleum products and customers have agreed that there will be a slide down of the pump price of PMS and that the price cut will get us about N5 preliterate and that the price cut will take effect from next Monday, a week today.”

An update on the agreement reached othe n the electricity tariff will also be communicated by January 25.
