Dangote Petroleum Refinery on Tuesday revealed a further reduction in the prices of diesel and aviation fuel to N940 and N980 per litre, respectively.

Daily News 24 reports that the development was announced just two weeks after the Dangote refinery brought down the price of diesel to N1,000 from over N1,500 per litre.

According to the Head of Communication of Dangote Group, Mr Anthony Chiejina, the new price aligns with the company’s commitment to cushion the effect of economic hardship in Nigeria.

Customers purchasing five million litres or more from the refinery would see a price increase of N940, while those purchasing one million litres or more will see a price increase of N970, the company explained.

“I can confirm to you that Dangote Petroleum Refinery has entered a strategic partnership with MRS Oil and Gas stations, to ensure that consumers get to buy fuel at affordable prices, in all their stations be it Lagos or Maiduguri.

You can buy as low as 1 litre of diesel at N1,050 and aviation fuel at N980 at all major airports where MRS operates.”

Mr Chiejina further stated that the partnership would be extended to other major oil marketers.

“The essence of this is to ensure that retail buyers do not buy at exorbitant prices.

“The Dangote Group is committed to ensuring that Nigerians have better welfare and as such, we are happy to announce these new prices and hope that it would go a long way to cushion the effect of economic challenges in the country.

President Bola Tinubu had also commended Dangote for the initial price reduction, describing it as an “enterprising feat.”

Reacting to the latest development, the Director General of the Manufacturers Association of Nigeria (MAN), Mr Ajayi Kadiri, said, “The decision of Dangote Refinery to first crash the price from about N1,750/litre to N1,200/litre, N1,000/litre and now N940 is an eloquent demonstration of the capacity of local industries to positively impact the fortunes of the national economy.”

He added “The trickledown effect of this singular intervention promises to change the dynamics in the energy cost equation of the country, amid inadequate and rising cost of electricity.

“The reduction will have far-reaching effects in critical sectors like industrial operations, transportation, logistics, and agriculture, contributing to easing the high inflation rate in the country; a lot of companies will be back in operation.”
