NNPC disclosed this in a statement on Sunday referring to a document that has gone viral online as “fake news” and advicing the public and relevant stakeholders to disregard the information.
This comes after NNPC warned that depot owners selling fuel above approved prices would be sanctioned.
Reacting to the document alleging the review of ex-coastal, ex-depot and NNPC retail prices, the Corporation said, “It is fake news obviously concocted to cause confusion and to undermine the progressive drive of the NNPC to restore normalcy to the market. The general public and in particular industry operators at all levels should disregard this mischievous act of misinformation.”
It added that it is focused and determined to reposition itself to provide value to its shareholders, while meeting its statutory obligation as provider of energy security for the country.
