Except for perhaps, Lagos, Nigerians in many other states continue to pay more than the approved 145 Naira pump price for petrol.

But you know what? The Managing Director of Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation, NNPC, Maikanti Baru wants you to refuse to pay for any price mark-up.

In fact, he wants you to boycott any fuel station selling above 145 Naira per litre.

This was Baru’s position barely 24 hours after the Department of Petroleum Resources shut an NNPC station in Abuja for selling petrol at 181 Naira per litre.

The DPR had alleged that many oil marketers were using the NNPC’s name and logo to cheat the public.

According to the NNPC's boss, the management or the corporation has sanitised the supply and distribution of petroleum in the country.

“We have brought back sanity in the fuel supply system.

"We have over 2.1 billion litres of petrol in-tank at the moment and people should be calm and be sure that the right quantity is given to them at the filling station at 145 Naira per litre that the government has approved to be the sale price of PMS,” he said.
