Airline operators of Nigeria insist on increase in fares

Airline operators of Nigeria (AON) AON Secretary-General Mohammed Joji stated returning from recent airfare increase unless the authorities concerned and oil markets are ready to maintain stability in the prices of aviation fuel (All Africa, 26-Jan-2011). Mr Joji added it would take the intervention of the Federal Government, Nigerian National Petroleum Corp (NNPC); Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency (PPPRA), Pipeline and Petroleum Marketing Company (PPMC) and other stakeholders including the oil marketers to bring the price down to what it was before the increase.
