New bill won’t increase fuel price – Saraki

Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, has said that the proposed National Road Fund Bill would not increase the current price of petrol.

A statement released by his media office in Ilorin during the weekend stated:

“Nigerians should be reassured that although we have not even debated these recommendations, the committee’s report came with a clear proviso that the five naira should come from a restructuring of the existing template, which is reshuffling the taxes in the current N145 — so that five naira out of this will always be pushed to develop existing roads and build new ones.”
