The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria, IPMAN, has advised members of the public to disregard the alarm and speculations about an increase in the pump price of Premium Motor Spirit otherwise known as fuel.
Chairman of IPMAN, Enugu Depot, Mr Chinedu Anyaso made the call in an interview with Radio Nigeria Correspondent Uche Ndeke.
He said the Nigeria National Petroleum Company Limited, NNPCL, being the sole importer of the product has not in any way informed marketers of price increase.
Mr Anyaso called on Nigerians to disregard the speculations in social media.
The IPMAN, Enugu Depot Chairman said contrary to media reports, the Port Harcourt refinery is yet to come on stream.
” There is no need for panic buying as there is enough product being made available to marketers at different depots by the NNPCL.
