The Federal Government has come out to say that it doesn’t plan to increase the price of Premium Motor Spirit, PMS, in June 2021.

The Minister of State for Petroleum, Chief Timipre Sylva, recently revealed this via a statement, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, no increment will happen so that the ongoing engagement with labour will not be disrupted in any way.

He then reassured Nigerians that despite the burden of under-recovery, the Federal Government is not in a hurry to make life hard for them by tampering with fuel price.

His words, “Once again, it has become necessary to assure Nigerians that despite the burden of under-recovery, the Federal Government is not in a hurry to increase the price of Premium Motor Spirit (petrol) to reflect current market realities.”

“The current price of petrol will be retained in the month of June until the ongoing engagement with organized labour is concluded.”

“This clarification becomes necessary in the light of recent reports regarding the resolution of the Nigeria Governors Forum to increase the pump price of petrol.”

“In this regard, I would like to strongly urge petroleum products marketers not to engage in any activities that could jeopardize the seamless supply and distribution system in place while calling on members of the public to avoid panic buying because the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation has enough stock of petroleum products to keep the nation wet.”
