Following the reports of an alleged hike in the price of premium motor spirit, popularly known as petrol in the country, the retail arm of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation Limited has come out to debunk the news that it has increased the price of the commodity.
It would be recalled that the news of the increase in the price of petrol, filtered the internet on Monday and as a result, some petroleum marketers have stopped selling the product while some others decided to sell it at a high rate, and this has returned cue to some filling stations in the country.
However, the NNPCL, in a swift reaction to save the situation, has stated through a Twitter post, that the price has not been increased, and that there is no plan to increase the price at the moment.
Disclosing this through its Twitter handle, NNPCL tweeted: “Dear esteemed customers, we at NNPC Retail value your patronage, and we do not have the intention to increase our PMS pump prices as widely speculated.
Please buy the best quality products at the most affordable prices at our NNPC Retail Stations nationwide.”
