Senate Steps Down Controversial N5 Fuel Level Bill

Nigerian Senate on Thursday stepped down consideration of the report on the National Roads Fund Establishment Bill asking the Committee on Works to make “further consultations” on it.

Most of the lawmakers, who spoke on the recommendations, particularly the N5 levy on petroleum products, expressed reservations on the proposal, warning that it would impose more hardships on Nigerians.

It was unanimously agreed that the panel should review the contentious proposals in the report.

The panel had specifically recommended multiple taxes, including a N5 levy on every litre of petrol and diesel imported or refined in the country.

The recommendation had generated a public outcry.
