Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) Kano State branch has directed its members under the zone to sell fuel at N162. 44 per litre from today as directed by the Federal government.
Recall that the Federal Government had reduced the price of the commodity from N168 per litre to N162. 44 per litre following the public outcry.
The IPMAN chairman in Kano, Alhaji Bashir Dan-Malam gave the directive while briefing newsmen in Kano on Monday.
He said the directive followed the reduction of price of the commodity to marketers by NNPC from N153.17 to N148.17 per litre with effect from today (Monday December 14,2020).
He said since the Federal Government had reduced N5, the marketers have no option than to also reduce price of the commodity at their filling stations to members of the public.
“Iam therefore directing our members in Kano zone to commence the sell of the commodity at N162.44 per litre from today in compliance with the government’s directive,” he said.
“I want to also assure the public that we are committed to transporting the product to all states under Kano including Katsina, Bauchi, Yobe and Jigawa especially during the yelutide period to prevent scarcity.
He, however commended the Federal Government for listening to the public complaint and outcry over the recent increase in the price of the product.
According to him, IPMAN would continue to support the Federal Government to ensure uninterrupted fuel supply across the nooks and crannies of the country.
The IPMAN chairman commended the Management of Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) under the leadership of Mele Kyari for his commitment to ensure accountability and transparency in the oil and gas sector
