Senate Cautions Govs Against Pushing For Increase Of Petrol Pump Price To N385/Litre



The Nigerian Senate has warned Governors against pushing for an increase in the pump price of Premium Motor Spirit, PMS,popularly known as petrol.

This was disclosed by the Chairman, Senate Committee on the Federal Roads Maintenance Agency, Senator Gershom Bassey.

The lawmakers insisted that anything that has to do with the price of petroleum products must be fixed with a human face.

He said, “Here, we have a country where the quality of the value of the naira is going down. The disposable income of all Nigerians is nothing to write home about, yet you are talking about increasing the prices of fuel. I think the governors should approach the issue with a human face.”

The lawmakers explained that certain realities exist in the petroleum industry which the NNPC has been talking about for some time now.
