Written by on November 1, 2022

The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria has threatened to withdraw its service over incessant increment on the price of the premium motor spirit popularly known as petrol in the Eastern part of the country.

The marketers, in a statement, blamed private depots for the hike in price stating they were buying at N185 per liter, which will increase to N200 per litre after adding other expenses.

The marketers regretted that even at N200 per liter, their businesses could not thrive considering the high cost of diesel to power the station and the exploitation from private tank depot owners and The Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG)

They implored the Federal Government to revive all NNPC depots within the Eastern zone to enable them get the premium motor spirit at a regulated price.
