No truth to rising oil price.
The Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry today dismissed a claim circulating on social media that the price of cooking oil was set to increase.
In a statement issued today, the ministry expressed regret over the action of an individual who circulated a newspaper report dated Oct 19, 2016, about the increase in price of cooking oil.
“That action is regarded as irresponsible and it caused panic among consumers,” the statement said.
The public is advised to refer to the ministry to obtain confirmation before circulating such information.
