IPMAN Blames NNPCL For The Petrol Scarcity
The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) has blamed the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited for the shortage of petrol in most of filling stations in the country.
It asks NNPCL to come out clean on the challenges it is facing in sustaining petrol supply to tank farms and private depots.
IPMAN National Operations Officer, Mike Osatuyi on a television programme, says that filling stations are dispensing what they were supplied from the private tank farms in the country.
According to him, most of the tank farms are now dry, and asks NNPCL to justify its claim it has 1.6 million litre of petrol in stock.
IPMAN controlled filling stations had jerked up the pump prices at above the official price in the past two days, blaming it on above approved depot price they are sourcing petrol from private depots.
