IPMAN Assures Effective Distribution Of Petroleum Products


The National President, Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN), Mr Chinedu Okoronkwo says the association is committed to supporting the Federal Government on effective distribution of petroleum products.
Okoronkwo gave the assurance in Lagos yesterday while interacting with newsmen.
The IPMAN president spoke against the backdrop of price disparity in some States in Nigeria due to the inability of marketers to distribute as at when due.
According to him, IPMAN has reached an agreement with other marketers for better synergy in meeting products availability in the country since it has better strength in storage.
“IPMAN, which controls 80 per cent outlets, has more advantage in distributing and dispensing in both urban and hinterlands in the country.
“In line with government’s efforts at ensuring efficient petroleum products distribution across the country, IPMAN members have opted for a seamless distribution of petroleum products,’’ he said.
The IPMAN boss said that such synergy amongst members with government would present a common front that would advance the interest of the group and ensure smooth distribution of petroleum products across the country.
“I can assure that other marketers, like the Depot and Petroleum Products Marketers Association (DAPPMA), Major Oil Marketers Association of Nigeria (MOMAN) and Petroleum Tanker Drivers (PTD), will work with IPMAN anytime and any day.
“We are working to present a common front that will easily drive government policies and ensure smooth distribution of petroleum products across the country,” he said.
He assured of IPMAN’s readiness to work with relevant organisations to support government’s efforts to ensuring that petroleum products were readily available in every nook and cranny of the country.
He reiterated that the association had been re-positioned to increase fuel supply across the country, adding that the association would work with relevant players in the sector to tackle hindrances in petroleum industry in the country.
