Marketers slash fuel price to boost travel for elections

Independent Marketers of petroleum products on Monday announced a reduction in the pump price of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) also known as petrol to N140 per litre.

National President of Independent Marketers Associate of Nigeria (IPMAN), Chief Chinedu Okoronkwo, maintained that the reduction of fuel price from its current N145 per litre was a sacrifice for the rescheduled general elections.

This is the first time in the history of 58-year-old Nigeria that the pump price of petrol is reduced by marketers – who are generally businessmen – over elections.
