No increase in fuel price – NNPC counters PPPRA

The post read: “NNPC insists no increase in Ex-Depot Price of PMS in March.”

This countered report posted by PPPRA on Thursday night via its website, announcing an increase in fuel price.

PPPRA in its announcement explained that the hike was due to the market determinants and importation costs.

PPPRA fixed the lower band of the new fuel price at N209.61 per litre and upper band at N212.61 per litre.

Recall that the NNPC spokesman, Kennie Obateru, had on February 28, assured Nigerians that there would be no increase in fuel price.

“Contrary to speculations of an imminent increase in the price of PMS in the country, the NNPC has ruled out any increment in the ex-depot price of petrol in March”, he said.
