“We are coming up with a policy in the next few days that will allow us develop the price modulation that allow us swing our price along with international pricing,” he said.

The average international price of petrol on Tuesday is $1.2 per litre. In the UK , it’s £1.07. This is over N300 per litre when converted to Nigeria’s currency.

According to Kachikwu, “we are now transiting into fuel modulating pricing because we do not have sufficient foreign exchange to continue fuel importation we have been doing.”

Kachickwu spoke during a town hall meeting in Kaduna.
