Fuel - Kachikwu And Baru Deny Reports Of Possible Hike

Petroleum Minister and the MD, NNPC, Baru, have denied reports that there will be an increase in the prices of petroleum products across the country.



The Minister of State for Petroleum, Dr Ibe Kachikwu on Monday refuted media reports of possible increase in the prices of petroleum products in the country.

Supported by and the Group Managing Director of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Alhaji Maikanti Baru, after a closed-door with President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja, Kachikwu described the reports as untrue.

Pressed on the issue by State House correspondents, he asked, ``have you seen any memo to that effect?’’

On his part, Baru said that NNPC has no plan to increase the pump price of petroleum products, stressing that ``there is nothing like that.’’


The GMD, however, directed the correspondents to go to the Petroleum Product Pricing and Regulatory Agency (PPPRA‎) for further clarification on the issue.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) recalls that oil marketers had indicated intention to increase prices of the products, citing continued scarcity of foreign exchange to finance importation of the products, as reason.

  10. How can NNPC present and past MDs say that N145/litre is not realistic and then change their minds and say no increase. This APC should not take us for fools. The temporary change of mind is simply cos they realise that any increase or inclination to increase would adversely affect APC in the Edo and Ondo states election. Mark my words, this govt will revisit price of petrol when the state elections are over. Vote wisely
