NOVEMBER 14, 2020

The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), on Friday, said the “slight increase” in the ex-coastal price and ex-depot price of Premium Motor Spirit, widely known as petrol, is due to the “prevailing realities of market forces of demand and supply.” 

The NNPC made its position known in a statement signed by its Group General Manager, Public Affairs Division, Kennie Obateru.

Obateru further advised petrol marketers to make their purchases through the online PPMC platform at the recommended prices.

The ex-coastal and ex-depot prices are expected to impact on pump prices nationwide.
