Despite increase in the PPMC Ex-Coastal Price and Ex-Depot Price (with collection) to N130 and N155.17, the slight increase in the price based on the prevailing realities of market forces of demand and supply, the correct prices, as can be seen on PPMC’s “Customer Express” platform (online portal for procurement of petroleum products) are: Ex-Coastal Price – N128, and Ex-Depot Price (with collection) – N153.17. BOVAS & Company Limited, a petroleum products trading & marketing organisation keep surprising buyers in ensuring they consider consumers first.

According to one consumer “this is great news, BOVAS has truly embraced the spirit and visions of a new Nigeria, a new Nigeria is truly possible. I had same experience in Offa Garage Filling Station, Ilorin today. God will bless BOVAS for us.
BOVAS opened her first service station in Osogbo, the capital city of Osun State in Nigeria in 1991 as part of the efforts to assist the government in making petroleum products more accessible to everyone. Presently, the Company operates One Hundred & Nineteen (119) service stations around the country and has several more under various stages of construction, which are to be delivered at intervals. A Liquefied Petroleum Gas Plant was added to the group in 1995, to cater for the domestic gas customers primarily in the southwestern part of the country with Twenty (20) operational gas skids.
The LPG plant, situated at Jegede Bus Stop, Akanran Road, Ibadan, Oyo State commenced operations also in 1995. We supply LPG directly to homes and other major domestic users of LPG and also provide refilling services at our plant. The company has also introduced innovative LPG Auto Skid Units at selected service stations and locations across the nation.
Her are consumers testimony as reported by Somi Tope Sunday JP
Let me tell you something. This week, following the complete deregulation of the downstream petroleum industry in Nigeria sometimes in 2020, the price of petrol jumped from N145 to N161.
So this afternoon, I drove into the Bovas Filling Station on Araromi Street, Akure to top up the petrol in my car; my first purchase since the new petrol price was announced.
My eyes went straight to the dispensing machine. I was more interested in the price per litre.
I figured that my favourite petrol station would normally sell petrol at N1 or N2 less than the official price. Yes! That’s the character of Bovas Oil. When the price was N161, Bovas sold at N159. So I expected to buy petrol at maybe N168 or N169 this afternoon at Bovas.
But the dispensing machine proudly displayed a price of N159 per litre, the old price. I double checked. Neither my eyes nor the dispensing machine was playing tricks on me.Perplexed.
I demanded to know why. The attendant told me that Bovas is selling at the old price because Bovas has not bought at new NNPC depot price.
Bovas still has the old stock. And they’re selling at the old price. They won’t take advantage. They’re not greedy. They won’t cheat hapless citizens. It’s shockingly unNigerian.
Bovas! Bovas! Bovas! What a company. What a brand.
So I bought petrol and drove out of Bovas Station, Araromi road, Akure, with prayers in my heart and on my lips for the woman who owns the company.
Bovas (the owner) is a Nigerian patriot. An uncommon Nigerian. A gift to Nigeria, particularly the South West. Bovas never cheats you by under dispensing. They pay attendants/workers fairly better than others. During fuel scarcity, you can trust them to go the extra mile to make fuel available. Ever dependable, Bovas.
Yes! Bovas is a shining example of righteousness. And Bovas is telling us something. We can fix Nigeria only if we all choose to be Bovas in our dealings as citizen.
We must listen to Bovas. The story is good.
The music is sweet. I choose to be Bovas too. What’s your own choice?
