President Bola Tinubu has begun putting in place a structural approach to make available cheap fuel through compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied natural gas (LPG) to mitigate the effects of the subsidy removal on Nigerians.

The Group CEO of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL), Mele Kyari, stated this on Wednesday in a chat with State House correspondents after a meeting with Tinubu.
