The Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) has kick-started a scheme intended at getting kerosene to consumers across the country at the regulated price of N50 per litre.
This was made known in a statement issued on Sunday in Abuja by the Group General Manager, Group Public Affairs Division, of the corporation, Mr Ohi Alegbe.
It said the scheme ‘Kero Correct’ initiative’ also intends to cut off the several layers of middlemen who made it difficult for the end user to enjoy the subsidy on the product.
The initiative was announced by the Executive Director, Commercial, of the Pipeline and Products Marketing Company (PPMC), Mr Frank Amego, at a one-day workshop in Abuja.
It said the workshop that was organised by the NNPC was to enlighten some Non-governmental Organisations (NGOs) and volunteers engaged to help monitor the sales of the product at NNPC Mega and affiliate stations across the country.
It quoted Amego as saying that the scheme was aimed at getting kerosene to the Nigerians who used the product as their domestic cooking fuel at the correct price.
