Executive Secretary PPPRA, Abdulkadir Saidu, who made this known on Tuesday in a statement made available to newsmen, also noted that the country’s LPG consumption made history in the year 2020, exceeding 1 million metric tonnes.
According to him, the steady and sustained pattern of growth from 840,594.37 MT LPG consumed in 2019, indicating an increase of 60.5% over 635,452.061MT recorded in 2018 were what culminated in the over 1million metric tonnes of LPG domestic consumption.
