It’s no longer news that there’s been review of new fuel prices across states in Nigeria after the mention of the removal of fuel subsidy by the new President, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Tinubu, who was sworn in as the 16th President of Nigeria after emerging winner at the tightest presidential election in the history of the country, made this known during his inauguration ceremony at Eagles Square on Monday, 29th May 2023.

He stated that “The fuel subsidy is gone. Subsidy can no longer justify ever-increasing costs in the wake of drying resources. We shall, instead, re-channel the funds into better investment in public infrastructure, education, health care, and jobs that will materially improve the lives of millions.”

After this announcement, it was observed that various fuel stations started hoarding their product to hike up the price as regards this. Reports gathered from different areas, including an oil-producing South-South zone sold at N600 per liter as of yesterday 30th of May, 2023.

But luckily, after an extensive NNPC (Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation) stakeholders meeting on Wednesday 31 May in the morning, new unified pump prices were later agreed upon amongst all the geopolitical zones including Abuja and Lagos state, which takes effect immediately.
