IPMAN Moves to Normalise Fuel Prices in Ondo, Ekiti, Osun

The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nige­ria (IPMAN), Ore Depot, in Ondo State, has promised to normalise fuel prices in Ondo, Ekiti and Osun states

The newly inaugurated Chair­man of the Association, Mr. Bayo Olowokere, who disclosed this on Wednesday, while addressing journalists at the inauguration of the association’s executives in Odigbo Local Government Areas of the state, said fuel scarcity in the three states would be the first on his priority.

He said: “We have a lot of things we are lacking. We have problem of non-availability of fuel at the depot. Marketers are not well co­ordinated. Fuel scarcity is one of the important issues that I need to address as fast as possible.

“Since I assumed office, I have made efforts to meet with the Chief of Staff to the President, Brig-Gen. Jones Arogbofa (rtd). But unfortunately, our efforts have not yielded fruits. However, I’m going to make sure that Ore depot receives fuel so that this is­sue of fuel scarcity can be laid to rest.

“My advice to members is to cooperate with us. I also use this opportunity to tell the public that the fuel they are selling above the approved price is not their mak­ing.

“We are making a good arrange­ment so that as soon as possible the price will go back to the nor­mal price of N87. People should bear with us. As soon as possible, I will make my best possible to bring the price back to N87.”

Inaugurated alongside Olo­wokere were, Oluayo Oguntuase, Vice Chairman; Kunle Adedo­kun, Secretary; Bayo Awodunni, Treasurer; Toyin Fasakin, As­sistance General Secretary and Zubair Jimoh, Welfare.
