Petrol Price Increased To N168-N170 Per Litre

Petroleum Products Marketing Company, a subsidiary of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation, has increased the ex-depot price of Premium Motor Spirit also known as petrol to N155.17 per litre from N147.67 per litre, a report by PUNCH said.

The memo said the new ex-depot price would take effect from Friday (today).

The ex-depot price is the price at which the product is sold by the PPMC to marketers at the depots.

In its PMS price proposal for November, the PPMC put the landing cost of petrol at N128.89 per litre, up from N119.77 per litre in September/October.

It said the estimated minimum pump price of the product would increase to N161.36 per litre from N153.86 per litre.

The National Operation Controller, Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria, Mr Mike Osatuyi, in a telephone interview said the over N7 increase in ex-depot price would translate into an increase in pump prices.

He said, “The implication of the increase in the ex-depot price is that there is going to be an increase in the pump price. We are expecting the pump price to range from N168 to N170 per litre.

“Crude oil price is going up.” 

He noted that the Nigerian Government haf fully deregulated petrol prices.

Following the deregulation of petrol prices in September, marketers across the country adjusted their pump prices to between N158 and N162 per litre to reflect the increase in global oil prices.

Petrol price band had also risen from N121.50–N123.50 per litre in June to N140.80-N143.80 in July and N148-N150 in August.

Minister of State for Petroleum Resources, Timipre Sylva, said in September that the government had stepped back in fixing the price of petrol, adding that market forces and crude oil price would continue to determine the cost of the product.

Strike May Continue For Years As ASUU advises students to acquire skills, travel, have fun

The body highlighted seven ways in which Nigerian students who have bee at home can efficiently make use of their time.

ASUU in an advisory statement it released via Twitter, told students to seize the opportunity presented by the indefinite strike to get a skill and add value to their lives.

It said; “This strike is an opportunity for any undergraduate to get a skill.

“Students should always seize opportunities to add value to their life. At no time will conditions be favourable. Successful people only seize opportunities.

“Here are 7 ways you can make the most of this period.

“1 Intern or get a small-time job

“This may be a great time to draft your CV and pitch yourself to employers. Already, there are a couple opportunities since the announcement of this strike.

“2 Join the family business

“Some of us have ‘family businesses’. This the business our parents have been doing for some time. It can be a big-time company or a small supermart. Whichever one it is, it’s not a bad idea spending holiday working here. It’s one way to give back and also add to your professional experience.

“3 Learn a new skill

“I have an engineer friend who makes a living today from graphics design. He learnt it while we were in school. There’s almost no limit to the skills you can learn during holidays. If anything, start with learning basic and intermediate computer operations(if you don’t know that by now). Code schools are also popping up everywhere so you can join one. You can also join the growing community of Nigerian freelancers and hone your skills.

“4 Be active in church or mosque, other groups

“Refuse to be an onlooker anywhere you find yourself. Be a part of people who make things work. Join a group in church, your community, and be active in it. These experiences also contribute shaping the person you’ll be in the future.

“5 Travel

“There’s no harm in travelling if you can afford it. Travelling is also a form of learning. If you happen to have relations scattered around Nigeria and abroad, consider travelling. Life’s too short to not explore more places.

“6 Read books

“We don’t mean only course-related books. Take up a novel, read a book on investment, study Nigerian history, look up spiritual books. Read far and wide.

“7 Have fun

“Well, you still have to catch some fun. Plus, it’s perfectly okay to spoil yourself a little. You can binge watch your favourite TV series, play football, go to more events etc.”

Bill Gates Pledges $70m To Ensure Entire World Gets COVID-19 Vaccine

Bill Gates Pledges $70m To Ensure Entire World Gets COVID-19 Vaccine

As part of moves to ensure that the vaccine circulated round the world, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in a statement signed by the duo announced on Thursday that it would commit an additional $70m to make sure vaccines are available for everyone — not just those, who could afford them.

 Bill and Melinda Gates have pledged to donate an additional $70m to ensure that everyone around the world had access to the new COVID-19 vaccine.

As part of moves to ensure that the vaccine circulated round the world, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in a statement signed by the duo announced on Thursday that it would commit an additional $70m to make sure vaccines are available for everyone —  not just those, who could afford them.

It reads, “COVID-19 anywhere is COVID-19 everywhere. That is why we have to ensure that everyone gets equal access to tests, drugs, and vaccines when they are available -- no matter where you live in the world."

The new vaccine also faces challenges in distribution because it requires special ultra-low-temperature freezers that aren't found in typical doctor's offices — an issue that led many to speculate there could be disparities in its administration.

#BayelsaToday: Suspected Cultists Attacks Traders & Passersby At Swali Market

There was pandemonium around the popular Swali Market in Yenagoa, Bayelsa state on Monday as suspected cultists came out in their numbers to rob unsuspecting passersby and traders selling outside the market.

The incident which occurred around 7:30pm plunged tricycle operators, passengers, traders and a host of others around  the Roundabout into a state of chaos, after the hoodlums who were wielding locally made guns known as 'Awka Made' fired several shots into the air to capture the moment.

The ever busy Swali Market soon became a ghost town as traders and tricycle operators abandoned their goods and tricycles and ran to safety,while the criminals dispossessed their victims of their phones, cash and other valuables, before the market vigilante group came to arrest the situation.

Speaking on the incessant violent crimes carried out by hoodlums around the market almost on a daily basis, a tricycle operator, who pleaded anonymity, called on the Bayelsa State Police Command to deploy security agents in the area.

He explained that passengers, road users and traders are always exposed to such attacks at the market roundabout, especially during the yuletide, but maintained the absence of security operatives in the area has given the criminals the assurance of having a field day whenever they strike.

He noted that there has been a great increase in the number of cases since the criminals noticed the absence of security operatives around the popular Swali Junction and the market roundabout, especially after the EndSARS protests.

The tricyclist also lamented that they are always at the mercy of criminals who rob them of their cash and other valuables.

Kaduna Court dismisses application stopping Zazzau emir’s coronation

Moves to stop the coronation of the 19th emir of Zazzau suffered set back as a Kaduna state High Court sitting in Zaria dismissed the application brought before it by one Bashir Aminu, the Iyan Zazzau.

This came as arrangements were on for the coronation of the new emir on the 9th, November 2020 in Zaria.

Iyan Zazzau asked the court to stop the Kaduna state government from installing  Ahmad Nuhu Bamalli as the 19th Emir of Zazzau

However, in his ruling, Justice Kabir Dabo ruled that the court’s refusal to grant the applicant request was taken out of the best interest of the emirate and its people.

“The refusal of the court to grant the Plaintiff his request was in the interest of peace and security and to avert any possible crisis in the emirate,” he said.

The court also said that granting the application could create a vacuum in Zazzau Emirshp stool.

This would not be well with subjects of the emirate and could ignite crisis and breach of security in the domain.

According to the court,  refusal of the injunction was better than granting it as it could push the subjects of the emirate in crisis when the vacuum of the emirship is created.

The court, however, adjourned the case to 18th, November 2020 for accelerated hearing on the substantive suit.
