Find Lasting Solution to Incessant Fuel Hike, IPMAN Tells FG
Independent Petroleum Marketer Association of Nigeria, IPMAN, wants Federal Government to find a lasting solution to the hike in petroleum products.
The chairman of IPMAN in Oyo and Osun states, Alhaji Bukola Mutiu stated this in Ibadan while featuring on Radio Amuludun FM weekly programme entitled ‘Ifiorowero’.
Alhaji Mutiu, who attributed the low supply of the product to nonavailability, maintained that in a bid to cushion the effect there was the need for government to resuscitate the moribund refineries across the country.
The IPMAN boss also emphasized the need for NNPC and other stakeholders in the petroleum sector to prevent private marketers from monopolies the supply of the product by creating a level playground in ensuring the availability of the product.
Commenting on the inconsistency in the price of diesel and gas, Alhaji Mutiu pointed out that the recent increase in the price of diesel would drastically affect companies if not addressed by the government.
Alhaji Mutiu urged NNPC to pay all outstanding debts to ensure an increase in the supply of fuel.
