The Nigerian government has reduced the current price of petrol in the country where they deducted Five Naira from N168 making it N162.44 approximately to N163.
Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige said the reduction would take effect from December 14, 2020.
Ngige disclosed this while speaking with journalists at the end of a meeting with labour leaders which began at 9pm on Monday and ended at 1:30 am on Tuesday.
He said a technical committee has been set up by the larger house to ensure price stability in the oil industry.
The minister disclosed that the committee, which will report back to the lager house on the 25 of January next year, will be appraising the market forces and every other thing that will make for stability in the industry.
