Mele Kyari, the Group Managing Director of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL), disclosed on Wednesday that President Bola Tinubu has started putting in place structural plans to distribute cheap fuel through compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LPG). The president plans to use this to reduce the impact of the removal of subsidies on Nigerians.
Kyari made this known during a chat with State House correspondents after a meeting with Tinubu.
He said the president plans to roll out the structural plan very soon, as he promised that it is part of the president’s palliative measures to ameliorate the suffering the removal of the subsidy has brought upon Nigerians.
He added that the nation’s refineries were undergoing intense rehabilitation and would soon be completed.
