LPG Statement of the Week – By The Senate Chairman on Gas, Jarigbe Jarigbe

Niglpga.com’s LPG Statement of the Week is credited to Senator Jarigbe Agom Jarigbe.

The distinguished Senator made the remarks during the week, when the Nigerian Association of Liquefied Petroleum Gas Marketers, led by its president, Oladapo Olatunbosun, paid a visit to the Senate Complex. 

 “You know that this administration has talked about improving gas supply, LPG and there is a new revolution in terms of Compressed National Gas for vehicles to cushion the effect of the Subsidy removal.

“As it concerns your complaints that NLNG sells to the terminal owners for about 10m for 20 metric tonnes and they sell to you the markets with about N7 million margin; which would have a negative multiplier effect in the value chain of that to the final consumer, this is what the Senate will not agree with. And I know the executive will not agree with it either because that is not the intention of Mr. President.”

He added, “I want to thank you for your courage because it would have been possible for you to compromise at this stage but you decided to speak up for the common man.

I would do more than what you have done. When the Senate President on a lighter note said Nigerians have to Breathe, it doesn’t mean for the very poor, it’s for Nigerians.”
