NOGASA Raises Alarm Over Incessant Increases In Prices Of AGO (Diesel) In Market
The Natural Oil and Gas Suppliers’ Association of Nigeria (NOGASA) has raised alarm on the incessant increases in the price of AGO in the market.
The National President of NOGASA, Benneth Korie, who made this known in a press Statement in Abuja said that- the rapid increases in prices have made it difficult for suppliers to access product and loans from commercial banks for doing their business.
This rising prices are also evidently causing veritable hardships haulege transportation and commuters alike.
He therefore called on Government to intervene before it will kills the sector and derails the anticipated growth, it is working towards achieving- as this will be counter productive to the aspirations of our over all national political economy.
The National President stated that the meeting of the association slated in October will take adequate steps towards finding lasting solutions to the problem.
NOGASA, he added is worried about the ugly development and is trying to understand why prices of Diesel are going as high as N950 to N1100 per litre as today in the market with a view to moderating the prices and shocks in the economy.
However, the price of crude oil as at today is 95 dollar per barell and doller exchange is racing towards #1000 per dollar. Consequently, the Nigeria refineries should be given emergency attention by government to forestall the nose diving of the economy.
The Natural Oil and Gas Suppliers Association of Nigeria has been playing a pivotal role in the oil and gas industry and will continue to ensure the availability of adequate supplies of products to Nigerians.
He said “We will continue to deliver on our mandate as we make progress in the oil and Gas Industry.
