Nigeria petroleum group cuts petrol price to encourage people to travel to vote

ABUJA, Feb 20 (Reuters) – Nigeria’s main fuel marketing group has reduced the price of petrol to encourage people to travel to vote in presidential elections this Saturday after the poll was delayed by a week, the information minister said on Wednesday.

Lai Mohammed said the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) had cut the price of petrol per litre to 140 naira from 145 naira and that “the discount is valid between the 21st of February and the 25th this year to allow those who want to go back home to vote”.
