FG slashes petrol pump price at N125


A Presidential approval for the reduction of pump price of petrol from N145 to N125 may have been given, according to Aso Rock sources.

President Muhammadu Buhari’s nod followed a presentation by the Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Chief Timipre Sylva, at the ongoing Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting at the Villa.
