VIDEO: Ibe Kachikwu Speaks on New Petrol Price of N145 Per Litre After Removal of Fuel Subsidy












The Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Ibe Kachikwu, on Wednesday, said any Nigerian entity is now free to import petroleum products into the country, subject to existing quality specifications and other guidelines issued by regulatory agencies.
Kachikwu pronouncement effectively ended the fuel subsidy regime.
The minister said that all Oil marketers will be allowed to import the product on the basis of foreign exchange procured from secondary sources and that PPPRA template will reflect this in the pricing of the product.
Further, Kachikwu said that new price band effective from 11th May, 2016, would put the retail price of petrol at N145 and below.
“Pursuant to this, PPPRA has informed me that it will be announcing a new price band effective today, 11th May, 2016 and that the new price for PMS will not be above N145 per litre,” he said.
The minister explained that the decision to remove the subsidy was reached after a meeting attended by the leadership of the Senate, House of Representatives, Governors Forum, and Labour Unions such as the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC), Trade Union Congress (TUC), Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG) and Petroleum and Natural Gas Senior Staff Association of Nigeria(PENGASSAN).
He noted that the persistent scarcity being expressed in the country is the inability of importers of petroleum products to source foreign exchange at the official rate due to the massive decline of foreign exchange earnings of the federal government.
“As a result, private marketers have been unable to meet their approximate 50% portion of total national supply of PMS,” Kachikwu stated.                         -(Source:Guardian)
