Nigerians may pay additional N5 on petroleum price if the current National Roads Fund bill before the House of Representatives is passed into law, according to the DailyTrust.
The N5 increase is part of recommendations of a technical committee set up by the House Committee on Works, chaired by Rep Toby Okechukwu (PDP, Enugu).
The technical committee, chaired by Chris Okoye, was in November given the task of drawing a report to be reviewed and considered by the House.
The National Road Fund, when established, is to serve as a repository of revenues from road user-related charges and other sources for financing to be managed and administered for routine and periodic maintenance works on Nigerian roads.
Thus, as part of the sources for the fund, the committee recommended that “fuel levy of N5 chargeable per litre on any volume of petrol and diesel products imported into Nigeria and on locally refined petroleum products.”
Other sources the committee recommended include, toll fees not exceeding 10 percent of any revenue paid as user charge per vehicle on any federal road designated as a toll road; international vehicle transit charges; inter-state mass transit user charge of 0.5 percent deductible from the fare paid by passengers as well as surcharge of 0.5 percent chargeable on the assessed value of any imported vehicle into the country.
The other sources of funding as recommended by the committee are lease, license or other fees which should be 10 percent of the revenue accruing from such or other fees pertaining to non-vehicular road usages along any federal road; grants and loans and gifts of land, money or other property.
The fund is to be managed by a governing board with a managing director as the head of the fund.
However, the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS) opposed the recommendation on the N5 fuel levy. The institute, which was part of the technical committee, submitted a minority report to the House works committee.

  1. I am the owner of JustCBD Store brand (justcbdstore.com) and am planning to broaden my wholesale side of business. It would be great if someone at targetdomain can help me 🙂 I thought that the best way to do this would be to connect to vape shops and cbd stores. I was really hoping if someone could recommend a dependable site where I can purchase CBD Shops B2B Companies I am presently taking a look at creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not exactly sure which one would be the best selection and would appreciate any advice on this. Or would it be much simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?
