Just In: FG crashes pump price of fuel to N140 per litre
The Federal Government may have directed the reduction in the petrol price from N145 per litre to about N130.
Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Timipre Sylva, had last week said the government was in consultation with relevant stakeholders on the possibility of reducing the petrol price following the crash in crude oil prices in the international market.
It was learned that the government may have approved the new petrol price after a presentation by Sylva to the ongoing meeting of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) being presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Information from the ongoing FEC meeting says an announcement to that effect would be made after the meeting.
