FG Restores Fuel Subsidy, Retains Official Pump Price

The Federal Government over the weekend recommenced the payment of subsidy on petrol as it subsidised the commodity by N5.84 for every litre of premium motor spirit (PMS) consumed in Nigeria.

Subsidy on petrol was stopped in January after the review of the pricing template of the product by the government.


It also announced that the current official pump prices of petrol would remain at N86 per litre when purchased at filling stations run by the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation and N86.5 per litre when sold at outlets operated by other oil marketers.

The government further said petrol scarcity would end in a few days, but was silent on the specific day or date.
