UPDATE: IPMAN calls off suspension of service, directs members to resume petrol sale

Selling petrol at N165 is unrealistic - IPMAN says as fuel scarcity persists in Lagos

Following an amicable resolution of the issues of contention, the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) said it has lifted the suspension notice previously sent to its members.

The association had earlier on Monday sent a notice to its members, instructing them to suspend gasoline sales and close all of their filling stations.

The association, on the other hand, confirmed that the issues had been resolved and that its members had been told to resume operations.

Abdulkadir Mustapha, spokesman for the IPMAN office in Maiduguri, Borno State, where the suspension notice was issued, told journalists, “Yes, the suspension notice is confirmed as genuine, but we have already resolved the issue and directed all members to begin dispensing fuel an hour ago.”

The association said the decision followed “the critical situation as it affect our sourcing and selling of product at lose and the action of the authority to impose the selling of product at a lose price on our side.”
