Sierra Leonean govt reduces pump price of fuel

Sierra Leone’s Government has announced a slight reduction in the pump prices of petroleum products with immediate effect, but the Executive Director of Native Consortium and Research Centre, Edmond Abu, expressed grave concern regarding the new price of diesel, which he said was not in agreement with the petrol.

In a press release signed by the government and oil marketers, petrol price moved from Le.8000 to Le.7000 per littre, whilst Diesel is now Le7, 500, Kerosene Le7, 600 and fuel oil is Le6,500.

While charging that he found it ridiculous for the price of diesel to be slightly above that of petrol, Edmond Abu urged government to ensure that the price should be the same-Le7000 per littre.
