Again, APC draconian govt increases premium motor spirit to N212 per litre
President Muhammadu Buhari’s led administration on Thursday announced an upward review of petrol price to N212 per litre, raising fresh economic concerns for the country’s impoverished households
The fuel pricing regulator PPPRA stated in its template released on Thursday night that a litre of fuel would now be sold for prices ranging from N209 to N212 per litre for March. This was against N186 the crucial commodity retailed for in February.
The PPPRA said the landing cost of petrol in March would be N189.61 per litre as against N163.74 in February.
The PPPRA has been setting guidelines for petrol sales since the Buhari administration announced partial deregulation of the oil sector, but the government maintains control of policies that determine ultimate retail costs.
