This is due to the commitment of the Federal Government in promoting gas penetration, to ensure a clean source of energy for cooking, power generation and transportation.

The PPPRA wishes to reiterate its continued support for the Federal Government’s policy to deepen LPG penetration in the country and create a healthy life for Nigerians.
