tension as Senate President, Ahmad Lawan, over increasing protest Fuel, Electricity Hikes from lawmakers, following recent actions taken by President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration.

 

The fear, Daily Sun gathered, is borne of claims that some of the lawmakers drawn from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) were plotting to convene an emergency sitting next week.

 

The emergency sitting, it was further gathered, is to provide an avenue for lawmakers to question the response of the leadership to recent hikes of electricity and petroleum products.

 

The Petroleum Pipeline and Product Marketing Company (PPMC), a subsidiary of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporations (NNPC), had on Wednesday announced a new ex-depot price of N151.56k for petrol.

 

However, some filling stations owned by Independent marketers dispensed the product at between N162 and N164 per litre, depending on their location.
