The Federal government has approved the cut in the price of premium motor spirit (PMS), commonly known as petrol to N130, from the current N145 per litre.

The cut is coming on the backdrop of the current fall in crude oil prices.

The President ordered that the adjustment takes effect immediately.

Giving the directive on behalf of the President, Mr Timipre Sylva told newsmen that compliance by petroleum marketers is to be enforced by the NNPC and the PPPRA.

Mr Sylva, the minister of state for petroleum resources noted that the price slash will affect all products, adding that their prices are also to be set by the PPPRA and the NNPC.

He further revealed that the ministry is also adopting a price modulation mechanism so the price of petroleum products can be regulated as the market dictates.

According to the minister, it is believed that this measure will have a salutary effect on the economy, provide relief to Nigerians and will provide a framework for the sustainable supply of PMS to Nigeria.

He assured that the Ministry of Petroleum Resources will continue to encourage the use of compressed natural gas to complement PMS utilization as a transport fuel.
