The President of the Nigerian Association of Liquefied Petroleum Gas Marketers, Oladapo Olatunbosun, has confirmed a scarcity of cooking gas (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) in Lagos and several other states.
While the specific cause of the shortage remains undisclosed, it has resulted in higher prices for consumers.
Residents in affected states, including Kano, Kaduna, Sokoto, Katsina, and Delta, are reportedly paying as much as N1,400 per kilogram to refill their gas canisters.
Olatunbosun urged the public to avoid patronizing outlets without gas plants, as they tend to inflate prices.
Prices are expected to decrease gradually at established gas plants, stabilizing at around N1,000 per 1kg.
