IPMAN urges government to repair refineries, depots

07 January 2014, 15:37

Sokoto - The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) has called on the Federal Government to undertake urgent repairs of the nation's refineries.

The Sokoto State Chairman of the association, Sule Magaji, made the call in Sokoto on Tuesday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

He commended the Federal Government for rescinding its decision to sell the refineries.

Magaji also called on the Federal Government to repair the fuel depots of the Nigeria National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) across the country.

The chairman stated that the repairs would make the refineries and depots to be fully functional.

“As it is now most of the refineries and depots are working but not to their full capacities.

 “So, they should be made fully functional to sustain the current tempo of steady supply of petroleum products across the nation,’’ he said.

Magaji further said that the marketers now had to sometimes transport the products from other parts of Nigeria.

 He said that the association was routinely monitoring the activities of its members to ensure that they were operating legally.

"We also make sure that all of them do not sell petroleum products above the government-approved pump prices.
