You would recall that on Wednesday, the Petroleum Products Marketing Company, a subsidiary of the NNPC, had increased the ex-depot price of the PMS to N151.56 per litre, with marketers saying the product would be sold at between N162 and N165 per litre.
This has, however, caused angry reactions from concerned Nigerians.
Lawmakers, in a statement by the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, Rep. Ndudi Elumelu, on Wednesday condemned the increase, describing it as “unacceptable as it will result in an increase in the already high cost of consumer goods and services, and worsen the current economic hardship being suffered by Nigerians”.
