The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has once again emphasized that there is no plan to increase the prices of petroleum products both at the ex-depot level and pump price ahead of the forthcoming yuletide.


 
The NNPC in a release informed that the ex-depot petrol price of N133.38 per litre and the pump price of N143/N145 per litre have not changed noting that the Corporation has enough stock of fuel to ensure seamless supply and distribution of products across the country.

While enjoining motorists and other users of petroleum products to disregard trending rumours of an impending fuel price hike in some online news platforms, the NNPC said it has the full commitment of all downstream stakeholders including petroleum marketers and industry unions to cooperate in achieving zero fuel scarcity this season and beyond.

The NNPC enjoined motorists not to engage in panic buying or indulge in the dangerous practice of stocking petroleum products in jerry cans at home.

The Corporation noted that its downstream subsidiary companies namely the Petroleum Products Marketing Company (PPMC) and NNPC Retail Limited are fully geared up to ensure that motorists enjoy uninterrupted access to petrol throughout the nation.

The Senator, who represented Ekiti North district from 2007 -2011 Chief Ayo Arise, has reportedly been kidnapped by unknown persons.

The Ekiti All Progressives Congress (APC) chief, sources close to the family claimed, was abducted at a spot on Okene – Lokoja road in Kogi State, on Sunday.
Sources also claimed that Senator Arise was returning to Abuja after allegedly attending a ceremony in Ikere-Ekiti, in which a retired Assistant Inspector-General of police (AIG), was conferred with a chieftaincy title last weekend.
Some sources in the APC claimed that he was to fly via Akure airport to Abuja and expressed surprise and sadness at the news of his abduction.
His telephone number, those of his driver and assistant are switched off, just as his friends and political associates are still wary of confirming the development.
A source in Lokoja, the Kogi State capital said the public relations Officer of the state’s police Command could not confirm the incident.
The source alleged that the police said they had not received a formal report of the incident.
However, unconfirmed sources claimed that the kidnappers had contacted Arise’s family and allegedly had demanded N80million ransom.
