    However, reacting on Monday night via its official X page, formerly known as Twitter, NNPCL claimed it had no intention to increase the pump price of petrol.

    The oil company and major importer of petrol into Nigeria wrote:  “Dear esteemed customers, we at NNPCL 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 NNPCL Retail stations nationwide.”

    WAKADAILY reports that President Tinubu had during his inaugural address on May 29, announced that fuel subsidy is gone, a development that led to the hike in the price of the commodity acrose the country from N198/litre to over N500/litre on May 30, 2023.
