The daily fuel consumption in Nigeria

 

Last year the federal government approved an automated fuel system management and sensor network aimed at revealing the daily fuel consumption by tracking fuel delivery from the point of entry into Nigeria to its final delivery in the petrol station and now, the government has got the Department Of Petroleum Resources (DPR) trackers to track every product coming into the country, which in a matter of months, the government will be able to know what we really consume.

Nigeria’s daily petrol consumption has jumped 56 million litres in 2019 from 54 million in 2018, according to the Petroleum Product Pricing Regulatory Agency, (PPPRA), though expert faults Nigeria’s consumption of over 50 million litres of petrol daily that the huge volume of PMS consumed in the country was inappropriate and does not promote development even Bismarck Rewane said in an interview a few days ago that he doesn’t believe Nigeria consumes over 50 million litres of PMS daily.

The Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Dr Ibe Kachikwu said my responsibility is to sit with NNPC, PPPRA, vet those numbers to be sure and that is why we just installed the latest technology with DPR that if the numbers are right, then we need to ask ourselves why we are growing at this alarming rate.

Let’s wait and see what happens.
