Nigerian Government Speaks On ‘Increasing Fuel Price

Boss Mustapha, Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, has said the Federal Government is not contemplating increasing the pump price of petroleum products across the country.

Mustapha said this while reacting to the current fuel scarcity being experienced by Nigerians.

Speaking in Lokoja, the Kogi State capital, Mustapha said the current fuel scarcity is being addressed by relevant agencies.

The SGF promised that the long queues would soon ease off.

He said, “I can assure the people that a day or two after the yuletide, the queue will ease out. The marketers created the scarcity but we have engaged all the relevant stakeholders and we are confident that it will soon normalise.

“We are not thinking about increase in the pump price. We have not discussed it and we will not increase the price”.

Mustapha maintained that the panic buying was unwarranted as there was much product available.
