New Pump Price: Most Filling Stations in Ibadan Yet to Comply

Filling stations in Ibadan Metropolis are yet to comply with the federal government’s directive to reduce the pump price of petroleum from 145 to 125 naira.

A team of Radio Nigeria correspondents who monitored the level of compliance in filling stations at Felele, Oke-Ado, Dugbe, and Mokola areas of Ibadan observed that most of the filling stations were still selling at the old price of #145.

An independent marketer claimed that they were still waiting for a directive from the Department of Petroleum Resources, DPR.

Also, at Bovas, a fuel attendant explained that modalities for the reduction in pump price had not been adequately communicated to them.

Meanwhile, some residents of Ibadan have expressed displeasure that despite the directive to take immediate effect, filling stations are yet to comply.

They advised relevant government agencies to ensure enforcement of this directive in filling stations.
