Disregard Trending Rumour of Impending Hike in Pump Price of Petrol, Says @NNPCgroup

… Clarifies Statement of its GMD
The #NNPC has advised motorists and other petroleum products consumers to disregard trending rumour of a planned hike in the pump price of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), otherwise called petrol..
..., saying the statement of the corporation’s GMD, Mallam @MKKyari, at the @nassnigeria yesterday did not suggest any plan to increase the price of the white product.
@NNPCgroup Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, Mr. @NduUghamadu, clarified that what the #NNPC GMD stated during his engagement with the @SPNigeria, Distinguished Senator @DrAhmadLawan, at the #NASS yesterday...
...was that the price of petrol was abysmally low in Nigeria compared to what obtained in neighbouring West African countries.
@NduUghamadu noted that Mallam @MKKyari had observed at the event that the huge disparity in the pump price of petrol between #Nigeria on the one hand and...
...her neighbouring countries on the other hand tended to encourage cross-border leakages, as he sought the support of the leadership of the #NASS to curb the malaise of smuggling.
He advised Nigerians from all walks of life to disregard the insinuation of a plan hike in the price of petrol by @NNPCgroup, saying statutorily, the Corporation was not even in a position to regulate the price of petroleum products...
..., advising that @NNPCgroup role as an operator must be differentiated from that of any of the Industry regulators.
The #NNPC spokesperson stated that as directed by relevant agencies of the Government, the pump Price of petrol remains N145 per litre.
@NNPCgroup cautioned petroleum products marketers not to sell petrol above N145 per litre following the disclaimed rumour.
@NNPCgroup advised Nigerians to remain vigilant and volunteer information to the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR), the Industry regulator, or to any law enforcement agency around them, on any station which sells petrol beyond N145 per litre.
