Dangote further reduces diesel price to N1,000/litre

Dangote refinery

The Dangote Petroleum Refinery has announced a reduction in the price of Automotive Gas Oil, popularly called diesel, from N1,200/litre to N1,000/litre.
It announced this in a statement issued on Tuesday by its spokesperson, Nduka Chiejina.
The statement read in part, “In an unprecedented move, Dangote Petroleum Refinery has announced a further reduction of the price of diesel from N1,200 to N1,000/litre.
“While rolling out the products, the refinery supplied at a substantially reduced price of N1,200/litre three weeks ago, representing over 30 per cent reduction from the previous market price of about N1,600/litre.
“This significant reduction in the price of diesel at Dangote Petroleum Refinery is expected to positively affect all the spheres of the economy and ultimately reduce the high inflation rate in the country.”
The PUNCH reported last week that oil marketers called on the refinery to reduce its diesel price, as they urged managers of the facility to sell at N850/litre.
