Ilorin motorists yet to enjoy new pump price

Date: 2020-03-20

Motorists in Ilorin, Kwara State are yet to enjoy the new pump price as filling stations refuse to adjust to the Federal Government's directive.

The Nigerian government, on Wednesday, directed the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) to reduce the pump price of petrol to N125 per litre.

However, some filling stations in parts of the Ilorin metropolis still sell at the old price.

A motorist, Mr. Kolawole Hafis told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that he was disappointed over the attitude of station owners who refused to immediately adjust to the new price.

Mr. AbdulFatai Saaduhe sales Manager of Total filling station at Geri-Alimi, Ilorin, Mr. AbdulFatai Saadu, said that they have yet to receive a directive from the headquarters to reduce the price.

Other filling stations visited still selling at the old price were Mosfala filling station Geri-Alimi, L.O.Atinuke filling Station Oko-Erin and Lubcon filling station, Taiwo road.

Reacting to the noncompliance of the directive, the Operations Controller of the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) in Kwara, Mr. Yusuf Sule, told NAN that the department had yet to receive the order from the headquarters to commence enforcement of the new pump price.

"I read the new pump price in newspapers, but l am yet to receive directives till now on enforcement," the controller said.

He however assured that the department would ensure full enforcement as soon as the directive was received to guard against sharp practices by petroleum marketers.
