PPPRA Says No Plan To Increase Petrol Price

The Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency (PPPRA) has reaffirmed that the Federal Government has no plan to increase the price of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), also known as petrol.

The General Manager Operations of PPPRA, Mr Olasupo Agbaje, made the declaration on Monday while addressing reporters in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.

Mr Agbaje said the agency has also commenced the payment of the new bridging allowance to tanker drivers, as approved by the government recently.

The clarification comes barely a week after the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) said it has no plan to increase the pump price of petrol.

The Corporation, in a statement, stated that the recent increase in bridging allowance to transporters will not affect the prevailing petrol price of 145 Naira per litre.

The NNPC reiterated its commitment to sustaining the existing cordial relationship between the Corporation and the leadership of the downstream industry unions and other stakeholders.
