We have no plans to increase petrol price, says NNPC

Published

on

The Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Limited says there is no imminent increase in the cost of premium motor spirit (PMS), also known as petrol.

NNPC gave the assurance in a statement on Thursday by Femi Soneye, NNPC spokesperson.

The national oil company told Nigerians to disregard ‘unfounded rumours’, reassuring them that there are no plans for an upward review of the petrol price.

“Motorists nationwide are advised against engaging in panic buying, as there is presently ample availability of PMS across the country,” NNPC said.

Meanwhile, NNPC, on February 7, 2024, announced the successful commencement of oil production from the Akpo West field, in Port Harcourt, Rivers state.

“This will be followed up by the production of about 4 million cubic meters of gas per day by 2028,” Soneye said.

“The development of Akpo West which is on Petroleum Mining Lease (PML) 2 (formerly OML 130) leverages the existing Akpo Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) facility via a subsea tie-back to keep costs low and minimises greenhouse gas emissions.”

The achievement, Soneye said, was enabled by the strategic leadership of Mele Kyari, NNPC group chief executive officer (GCEO), and the upstream directorate of the company, adding that their backing played no small role in propelling the operators to actualise the short- and mid-term hydrocarbon production goals of the President Bola Tinubu administration.

Odumodublvck fumes as Jaywon says his music is subpar

Odumodublvck, the Nigerian rapper, has fired back at Jaywon, the singer, over his recent statement about his music.

In an interview with Teju Babyface, Jaywon took a hit at Odumodublvck and Burna Boy for saying “no one paved the way” for them in the music industry.

He added that despite his love for the ‘Declan Rice’ singer, his “music is not all that”.

“I see people like Odumodu, I love Odumodu even though I know his music is not all that but I love the energy. I have watched Odumodu for a while before he even blew up, it was one of my young boy that was distributing his music,” he said.

“I like the guy because the energy, the hard work, it eventually pays off. Because Burna Boy said nobody opened the way for him, you too are coming out to say nobody open the way for you. Yeah you are big but you do not say that.”

Disgruntled by Jaywon’s remark, Odumodublvck took his X page to lambast the singer while writing off his music.

He argued that despite his colleague’s years in the music industry, he has “nothing to show for it”.

Odumodublvck also urged Jaywon to look for ways to make money instead of engaging in interviews.

“Na why Ayra no gree hold your hand, make you no go talk say you have the way for her, still hold am for hand carry am go promise land,” he wrote.

“Baba you no pave any way for me. Awon FERMA, road maintenance agency. No go hustle, chor chor chor, babu workings.

“You like me, but you say my music is not all. OG no be by age, na by doings and coordination. When they can not do what you did, they start to belittle it.

“Mr Jaywon if my music is not all that, then your music is nothing. Bros you no be my OG, na me OD talk am. N****s always trying to play God because they released a song during the time of Melchizedek of old.”

Jaywon, the Nigerian singer, has claimed that Eedris Abdulkareem assaulted him while they were both under the Kennis Music label.

In a recent interview with Teju Babyface, the comedian, Jaywon described Eedris as a “bully”.

He claimed that after a concert, Eedris sent his associates to attack him for stealing the spotlight.

He also alleged that the ace rapper threatened to harm the bus driver if he stopped driving while he was being beaten.

“A lot of people might know Eedris, but I know Eedris. I was on the same label with him. We were at Kennis Music together and we had a couple of issues,” he said.

“Eedris is a bully. Ask anybody who knows him. Eedris once attacked me with his boys. He attacked me on a bus after a show because he felt I stole his shine at the concert. They were kicking me. It was even in the news that I was in a coma. I tried to stand and they were kicking me down.

“When I finally got up, I confronted the driver. I was like, ‘How will something like this be going and you are still driving?’ Eedris threatened to kill the driver if he stopped driving.”

Actress Ini Edo and filmmaker Chineye Nworah, who worked together on the Netflix series Shanty Town, are now fighting over who owns the movie.

News has come out that the Netflix team in Africa started discussions last year with Nworah and Giant Creative Media for a second season of Shanty Town because of the success of the first film.

But, on January 15, 2024, Edo sent a legal warning to Netflix, asking them to stop talking to Nworah and Giant Creative Media about making another season.

Ini Edo’s lawsuit provides specific details, arguing against Chineye Nworah’s exclusive rights to the series Shanty Town. Edo’s main points include:

  • Nworah should not be the only one in talks about continuing the series because he does not own it by himself.
  • The working relationship between Edo, Nworah, and another partner, Joy Odiete, began with an agreement on December 13, 2019. This agreement was to produce five movies over ten years.
  • In June 2021, a new deal was made involving Minini Empire Productions, Giant Creative Media (GCM), Nevada Bridge TV, and Champion One Entertainment. They all signed a “Shanty Town Investment Agreement.”
  • According to this investment agreement, the intellectual property (IP) rights are owned by both Minini Empire Productions and GCM. Additionally, they are entitled to 5% of the total profits from the project.
