Tinubu commends Dangote Group for crashing diesel price

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu Wednesday commended the enterprising feat of Dangote Oil and Gas Limited in reducing the gantry price of Automotive Gas Oil (AGO), also known as diesel. 

The Group recently reviewed downwards the gantry price of AGO from N1,650 to N1,000 per litre for a minimum of one million litres of the product, as well as providing a discount of N30 per litre for an offtake of five million litres and above.

The price review represents a 60 percent drop, which will, in no small measure, impact the prices of sundry goods and services.

The President said Nigerians and domestic businesses are the nation’s surest transport and security to that glorious destiny of economic prosperity.

He said the federal government’s 20 percent stake in Dangote Refinery was a confirmation that such partnerships between public and private entities are essential to advancing the overall well-being of the country.

The President called on Nigerians and businesses to, at this time, put the nation in priority gear while assuring them of a conducive, safe and secure environment to thrive.
