The Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Limited says it has not adjusted the pump price of premium motor spirit (PMS), known as petrol, across its retail outlets.

There have been speculations that NNPC has reduced the price of petrol to N560 per litre — from N568.

The national oil company was also quoted as increasing the price of diesel to N920 per litre.

In a statement on Wednesday, signed by Femi Soneye, NNPC’s spokesperson, the firm denied the claims.

“NNPC Limited wishes to clarify rumours suggesting a price adjustment for Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) and Automotive Gas Oil (Diesel) at its retail stations nationwide,” the statement reads.

“The company asserts that these reports are false and urges Nigerians to disregard them entirely.

NNPC Ltd. reaffirms its commitment to sustaining the current sufficiency of petroleum product supply across all its retail stations in the country.

On February 9, the NNPC had said there would not be any increase in the cost of petrol.
