ENUGU, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)- The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) says Nigerians should disregard the threat by some marketers in the South-East to shut down depots in Calabar, Port Harcourt and Enugu.
IPMAN Chairman Cross River chapter, Edet Umana disclosed this in a statement on Saturday.
Umana dismissed the purported threat of shutting down the depots due to alleged police harassment by some marketers in the zone.
He said IPMAN members in the zone had no interest in causing any disruption in the supply of petroleum products following the challenges recently faced across the nation.
Umana said: “The leadership issue of IPMAN has been settled by a Supreme Court judgement delivered in Abuja on December 14, 2018.
“The judgment read by Justice Musa Muhammad in suit No. SC15/2015 recognized Chinedu Okoronkwo and Alhaji Danladi Pasali as National President and Secretary of IPMAN respectively.”
He noted further that the police, acting on the judgement, invited some persons in the South-East claiming to be a faction of IPMAN for a meeting over the issue to proffer a lasting solution to the leadership tussle.
He urged IPMAN members to go about their respective businesses without any fear of intimidation.
