The National President of IPMAN, Chinedu Okoronkwo, warned that the projected pump price of petrol could rise to N750 after the full implementation of subsidy removal, but could drop to around N500 if the government provided foreign exchange for marketers at the official rate.

Okoronkwo also urged the government to allocate expected savings from subsidy removal to the provision of palliatives for the masses and to be aware of public backlash.
