Legislators in the house of representatives say “unnecessary charges” by Petroleum Products Price Regulatory Agency (PPPRA) are the reason Nigerians pay N145 per litre for premium motor spirit (PMS).

At a public hearing on Monday, the ad hoc committee on the review of PMS said the 145 per litre pump price was causing Nigerians “great pains and suffering”.

The legislators said for instance, 30 kobo, which was meant for “administrative charge”, was provided for in the 2016 budget but Nigerians still pay for it.

The lawmakers said there is also similar provision for such charges in the 2017 budget proposals.
