He asked all members under his jurisdiction to comply with the new price regime by making sure no one sells above the approved ceiling of N150 per litre.
Mr Dan-Mallam assured the public of availability of the petroleum products at all times.
Recall that the PPMC had in a memo signed by its Manager Sales, Mohammed Bello on Tuesday, August fixed the depot price of premium motor spirit, known as petrol at N138. 62 per litre.
