IPMAN reduces fuel price from N145 to N140 over shift in election date

The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) has directed its members to reduce pump price of petrol.


According to statement by the National President of the association, Elder Chinedu Okworonkwo, via through the Chairman, IPMAN Kano state chapter, Alhaji Bashir Dan-Malam, the association has directed its members to cut the price from N145 per litre to N140.

Okworonkwo said the marketers were expected to comply with the directive from Feb. 20 to Feb. 25.

According to him, Nigerians travelled to different places across the country to cast their votes, but to their dismay, the election was shifted to Feb. 23.

“IPMAN was prompted to slash N5 from the N145 per litre official Petroleum pump price in a bid to motivate Nigerians to return to vote again on Feb. 23.

“We urge all our members across Nigeria to immediately reduce the fuel pump price from N145 per litre to N140 per litre.

“This is because of the political situation that hit the country after INEC suddenly announced the postponement of presidential and National Assembly elections after Nigerians were fully prepared.

“We are all aware how Nigerians travelled to different parts of the country in order to exercise their civic duty; unfortunately, they heard a sad news of postponement of the polls,” Okworonkwo said.

He said, “This made us deem it fit to reduce the pump price in order to ease their suffering, and to also motivate them to travel again to exercise their franchise on Feb. 23.”

He, therefore, urged his members nationwide to immediately comply with the directive to enable Nigerians to travel to exercise their civic responsibility.

“We decided to express our concern over the postponement, as president Buhari expressed concern over the development.
