IPMAN directs members to sell kerosene at N50 per litre

28 November 2013, 17:31

Lagos -The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) on Wednesday directed its members to sell kerosene at N50 per litre in their filling stations.

Chinedu Okoronkwo, the National Vice-Chairman of IPMAN, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that association would sanction members who flouted the directive.

"We have been mandated to ensure the sale of the product at the regulated price of N50 per litre in all our filling stations and which we are complying.

"The association has been at the vanguard of ensuring that the product that is meant for the local people is sold at approved government price.

“This has also been the focus of IPMAN and the minister of petroleum.

“I want to assure every Nigerian that if the process is sustained, it will go a long way in assisting the general populace," Okoronkwo said.

The IPMAN boss commended the management of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and the Pipelines Products and Marketing Company (PPMC) for the distribution of kerosene to marketers.

He advised the companies to be consistent in the supply of the product to marketers and ensure effective monitoring.

Okoronkwo also called for increase in the use of cooking gas by Nigerians, stressing that other countries had changed from kerosene to gas.

“I want to assure Nigerians that a lot has been done by government to ensure that the use of gas has come to stay.

“If you go to Benin, we have compressed natural gas and in Lagos, NIPCO has 5 000 metric tonnes of LPG.

“We are trying to create awareness among the people about the essence of gas usage, advantages and prices," he said.
