Fuel Sells For N640 Per Litre In Awka

The price of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), otherwise called fuel, has risen to N630 and N640 per litre in Awka, the capital of Anambra, according to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

It was reported that independent marketers adjusted their pumps on Tuesday morning from N530 or N540 per litre, which prevailed until Tuesday.

NAN reports that NNPC outlets in the town were not selling as they were closed to customers.

However, RainOil outlets in Awka were selling at N600 per litre as of press time.

Some motorists expressed shock over the sudden increase in PMS prices.

Mr Anthony Umeh said he was just recovering from the effects of subsidy removal before the recent increase.

He said it was unfair that one could only get eight litres of PMS for N5,000 in a country that is one of the largest producers of crude oil in Africa.

“The increase is unfortunate; normally N5,000 will give me 25 litres, but I just got eight litres.

“This is unacceptable in a crude oil-rich Nigeria,” he said.

In a reaction, Mr Chinedu Anyaso, Chairman of IPMAN, Enugu Depot Community, in charge of Anambra, Ebonyi, and Enugu, acknowledged that there had been an increase in the price of products.

Anyaso said the adjustment was a result of the price list issued by NNPCL.
