Petrol Marketers Insist They Can’t Sell Petrol At N145/litre

Petrol marketers in the country have told the government for the umpteenth time that they can no longer sell petrol at N145 a litre. The marketers under the aegies of Depot and Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (DAPMAN) made their decision known to the government at a meeting with top officials at the presidential villa on Tuesday in Abuja. The marketers insisted that selling petrol at N145 a litre was no longer profitable as the price of crude oil in the international market has risen and this has a corresponding relation with the price of refined products.

Present at the meeting held at the Presidential Villa Conference Centre Abuja were Abba Kyari, Chief of Staff to the President, who presided; Maikanti Baru, Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), Ibe Kachikwu, Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, and Lawal Daura, Director-General of the Department of State Services (DSS).
