NNPC Debunks Reduction in Petrol Pump Price

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has debunked reports of a purported reduction in the current pump price of petrol from ₦87 per litre to ₦57.

A statement signed by NNPC’s Group General Manger, Group Public Affairs Division, Ohi Alegbe, in Abuja yesterday described the report as false and misleading.

The statement advised members of the public to ignore such tales, adding that the price of petrol remained ₦87 per litre.

It, however, said that a major step to ensure zero fuel queues throughout the country ahead of the forthcoming yuletide and beyond had begun off on Monday.
