Image result for EquipmentThe Nigerian Liquefied Petroleum Gas Association has called for the removal of duties and levies on imported equipment as well as the granting of tax holidays for new businesses in the LPG value chain.

President, Nigerian Liquefied Petroleum Gas Association, Dayo Adesina lamented that the tariffs on imported equipment like accessories, valves, regulators, cylinders are extremely high such that by the time they come out of the ports it is almost about 40 per cent.

He called for the development of the LPG sector through provision of incentives to promote clean environment, improved health, employment opportunities and human capital development.

Reduction in tariff, according to Adesina, would make LPG cheaper and affordable to Nigerians thereby increasing their purchasing power on other activities.
