He, however, noted that engagements were still ongoing with the Organised Labour to arrive at the appropriate price of the petroleum product, stating that until both parties arrive at a conclusion, the current price remains.

According to him, President Muhammadu Buhari instructed the corporation not to make petrol price out of reach of Nigerians, “especially at this moment”.

“What this means, however, is that we are taking out cash that could have been used for other things to pay under-recovery”, he said.

He revealed that Dangote refinery being constructed in Lagos State would commence operation this year.
