FG bans export of cooking gas to crash prices

The Federal Government has banned the exportation of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) also known as cooking gas in order to increase the volume of supply and crash the prices across the country.


This was made known to journalists by the Minister of Petroleum (Gas), Ekperikpe Ekpo, at the ‘Internal Stakeholders’ workshop on Thursday, February 22, 2024, in Abuja.


The minister who spoke at the sideline of the event stated that the LPG producers had been told to stop exporting the commodity out of Nigeria, following the recent jump in the cost of cooking gas.
