Nigerians are now paying more for petrol, although the official price is still fixed at N162.50 and N165 per litre.
Independent marketers who started rolling out a new price regime between 170 N190 N190 over the weekend and yesterday insisted it would be difficult for them to sell at the official pump price.
Besides Shortages of the product resurfaced in Lagos, Akure, Ado-Ekiti, Abeokuta, Jos and other cities in the southwest.
Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) in a Statement from Akeem Balogun, Secretary of the Lagos State Depot, said: “There is no way we can sell less than N180 per liter at the current price.
“Members are hereby advised sell in their area at a sustainable price. Just make sure the price is on your pump.
“Please contact the Secretariat if you have an authority questioning your operation.”
