Marketers sell petrol at new prices

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that marketers had sold petrol at new prices.

The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) has said that private depot owners have hiked the cost of petrol to N770 per litre. IPMAN’s national president, Abubakar Maigandi, disclosed this, stating that depot owners are complaining that the cost of freighting cargo at sea has risen, affecting prices.

The IPMAN president said the cost component has led to an upward adjustment in petrol prices, which has affected pump prices. According to him, the cost of freighting the product in Lagos is about N30 or N35 per litre, stressing that the aggregate cost of petrol in Lagos is around N800 per litre.
