IPMAN Reveals Date Fuel Will be Available, Affordable | Daily Report Nigeria

The Independent Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) has promised to make Premium Motor Spirit better known as fuel available and affordable in two week time.

This assurance was given by Mike Osatuyi, IPMAN’s National Operations Controller, while appearing on Arise Television’s Morning Show on Wednesday, February 1, 2023.

Osatuyi also stated that marketers are putting efforts together to ensure that the perennial fuel scarcity across the country isn’t only brought to an end but that fuel is also sold at affordable prices.

He further stated that all the stakeholders agreed to sell fuel at affordable prices to ease the burden on Nigerians.

In a bid to ensure the lingering fuel scarcity is brought to an end soon, a meeting was held between the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL) and all other stakeholders across the downstream petroleum value chain on Tuesday, January 31, 2023, the Controller added.

Osatuyi said,

Yesterday, there was a meeting in Abuja and the president of IPMAN was there and he gave me feedback on the meeting. So, I can say the NNPC is ready to find a solution to the crisis. They’ve now agreed that they will open more depots for IPMAN to be loading products through their platform at official price and this is what we have been clamouring for for years.

“From what I gathered now, they are given 14 days to clean up the mess. By the next two weeks, we should be able to buy at a very reasonable price. We must all work in the interest of Nigerians and let Nigerians benefit from this subsidy.”

Stations Hoarding Fuel, Selling Above Pump Price to Face Sanctions

Meanwhile, Governor Abubakar Sani Bello of Niger State has threatened to sanction any filling station found not dispensing its allocation or selling above the stipulated approved pump price for Premium Motor Spirit (PMS) in the state.

Bello issued the threat in a statement by the Secretary to the State Government, Ahmed Ibrahim Matane, in Minna, the state capital.

The governor decried the difficulties experienced by the people of the state, which are caused by the artificial scarcity and arbitrary pricing of PMS by marketers of the products.
