Buhari hikes transporters freight rate by N10

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, has considered and approved the upward review in freight rate for transporters to alleviate the challenges associated with the distribution of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) nationwide.
The approval, according to a statement from the Nigerian Midstream And Downstream Petroleum Regulatory Authority
(NMDPRA), was after due consultations with industry-wide stakeholders at the instance of the Nigerian Midstream and Downstream Petroleum Regulatory Authority (the Authority).

“The review was necessitated by the upswing in the global price of petroleum products especially Automotive Gasoil (Diesel) and its implication on the cost of transporting Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) nationwide.
“Consequently, the Authority wishes to advise as follows that:
i. In line with the mandate of the Authority as prescribed in the PIA (Section 31(i)) to develop and enforce a framework on tariffing and pricing for natural gas and petroleum products, the transporters
freight rate has been reviewed to reflect current market realities.
ii. The revised freight rate takes effect from 1st June 2022 while still maintaining the current regulated PMS pump price of N165.00/Litre.
iii. An Inter-agency Team is being constituted to ensure reconciliation and payment of outstanding transporters claims in line with established payment procedure under the Bridging Fund Scheme.

Meanwhile, NNPC, the sole supplier of PMS, has maintained over 32 days sufficiency in-country.
We believe the increase in transporters freight rate will further encourage Nigerian Association of Road Transport Owners (NARTO) and other stakeholders to deploy more trucks to transport PMS nationwide to ensure adequate supply of the product.
The Authority assures the public of its commitment to building a strong and sustainable Midstream and Downstream Petroleum sector

N165 pump price of petrol unrealistic now- MOMAN

The MOMAN chairman noted that there is some energy nationalism going on, leading to some major refining countries hoarding petroleum products like diesel for local use as was the case with COVID-19 vaccines, adding that some developing countries are subsidizing the cost, leading to widespread outages in those countries.
