SIBU: A free petrol programme will be held from Jan 18 to 20.

The event, to start at 9am on Jan 18 will be held at Petronas Service Station, Jalan Tun Abang Haji Openg 2 (Syarikat Unipetro), next to SMK Tung Hua.

Sibu MP Oscar Ling said yesterday that the initiative is meant to help the lower-income group B40 in view of the coming Chinese New Year celebration

“We will sponsor 500 motorcycles with RM5 worth of petrol each. This is a small token from Pakatan Harapan to motorcyclists during the celebrations. I hope this will help to ease their Chinese New Year spending,” he said in a press statement.

Motorcyclists can get the free petrol coupon at Petronas Service Station, Jalan Tun Abang Haji Openg 2 starting from 9am on Jan 18 onwards.

The free petrol coupon can only be used at the said petrol station on those three days.
