The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN ) on Tuesday applauded the management of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) for resuming pumping of petroleum products to the Ejigbo depot, in Lagos state South West Nigeria.
The Chairman of IPMAN, Ejigbo Satellite Depot, Ayo Alanamu, who gave commendation said the NNPC on July 8 resumed pumping of products including petrol to the depot, to avert fuel scarcity in the area.
“We commend NNPC for the overhaul of the depot and completion of the storage tanks repairs, to boost products availability. Effective loading has commenced and we appeal to the management of the corporation to always carry marketers along whenever there are issues affecting the depot,” he said.
He pledged the association’s collaboration with the corporation on pipeline surveillance and the crusade against oil theft in the country.
