Kano - Auwalu Rano, a major independent petroleum marketer in Kano, has slashed price of kerosene from N140 to N110 per litre.
The Manager, A.A Rano Petroleum at Yankaba, Kano, Lawal Sabo, disclosed this in Kano on Monday.
According to him, the company has directed all its subsidiary filling stations across the country to sell the commodity at uniform rate.
