Petrol price will not go up in March: NNPC

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has advised motorists to stop panic-buying of petrol. It said it has no plan to increase the ex-depot price in March.

NNPC spokesman, Dr Kennie Obateru, said this in Abuja on Sunday.

The ex-depot price is the price at which depot owners sell products to marketers.

The price determines how much marketers will sell to motorists at their various fuel stations.

“Contrary to speculations of 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.

“The corporation was not contemplating any rise in the price of petrol in March in order not to jeopardise ongoing engagements with organised labour and other stakeholders on an acceptable framework that will not expose the ordinary Nigerian to any hardship,” he said .

Most fuel stations in the Federal Capital Territory are not selling the product while queues are seen in few that are dispensing to motorists.

Obateru also cautioned petroleum products marketers not to engage in arbitrary price increase or hoarding of petrol in order not to create artificial scarcity and unnecessary hardship for Nigerians.

He added that the corporation has enough stock of petrol to keep the nation well supplied for over 40 days and urged motorists to avoid panic buying.

He further called on relevant regulatory authorities to step up monitoring of the activities of marketers with a view to sanctioning those involved in products hoarding or arbitrary increase of pump price.
