Lagos, Feb. 8, 2023 – The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) says the management of the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Ltd. (NNPCL) has allocated petrol to its members directly to ease scarcity.

Mr Chinedu Okoronkwo, the National President of IPMAN, confirmed this on Tuesday in Lagos after the IPMAN NEC meeting with NNPCL retails management

Okoronkwo said the order was issued after a closed-door meeting of IPMAN executive and NNPCL management.

He said the meeting resolved that IPMAN members should load petrol at NIPCO, MRS and other loading depots.

Okoronkwo said the NNPCL had also confirmed that the  product had been released to the depots for immediate loading by IPMAN members.

He said IPMAN members were advised to upgrade their POS to G4 or G5 for payment efficiency.

“Members without POS are also advised to acquire it for efficiency.

“The arrangement was in collaboration with NNPCL Retails Ltd and IPMAN.

“IPMAN Members are advised to open up their stations and start selling to the public nationwide.”

Okoronkwo said IPMAN was a responsible association with over 85 per cent filling stations across the nooks and crannies of Nigeria.

He promised that lPMAN would soon load at NIPCO and MRS depots massively for South West and North West of the country.

Okoronkwo enjoined members, who had made payments, to commence loading of petrol from the designated depots.

Consequently, lPMAN has reversed its earlier order that its members should suspend all operations across the country.

The directive overriding the initial “shut-down of operations” was issued in a two-paragraph statement by its Chairman, Alhaji Mohammed Kuluwa.

Kuluwa said IPMAN had ordered immediate reversal and directed oil marketers to resume operations nationwide. (GBN)
