The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association (IPMAN) has expressed excitement over the introduction of online purchase of Petroleum by the federal Government of Nigeria.
Sanusi Fari, IPMAN National President, in a statement yesterday in Abuja pledged the support of his association to the present government’s policy concerning the purchase of petroleum products online, noting that the move would assist the Federal government to plan effectively and to gather accurate data of the amount of the product needed and consumed in the country.
He affirmed that his members nationwide have been complying with the renewal of the bulk purchase agreement they entered with the Petroleum Products Marketing Company (PPMC). He canvassed for a closer cooperation with all government agencies to enable the general public to continue to enjoy the constant availability of petroleum products.
He also disclosed that the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association (IPMAN) is partnering with the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) and Ministry of Petroleum Resources to boost federal government’s efforts in curbing the smuggling of petroleum products across the Nigerian borders.
The IPMAN President expressed the readiness of his members to partner and cooperate with security agencies towards the eradication of smuggling of petroleum products across the Nigerian borders.
He also debunked claims that the association is factionalized, adding that he remains the one and only authentic president of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association (IPMAN).
