The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) has called on the Federal Government to take urgent steps to reopen petrol products supplies to Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) Depot in Emene, Enugu.
The new Caretaker Committee Chairman of IPMAN, Enugu NNPC Depot Community, Chinedu Anyaso, made the call during the inauguration of the new leadership of the branch in Enugu on Tuesday.
“President Muhammadu Buhari administration has constantly reiterated its resolve to create jobs and lift several Nigerians out of poverty and hunger.
“One of the best ways to achieve that goal in the South-East and its environs is to revitalise the Enugu NNPC Depot because it has the potential to create thousands of direct and indirect jobs.
“Such move will also roll back crimes substantially in the zone and beyond,’’ he said.
The new IPMAN boss however, assured the public of the marketers’ commitment to steady supply of petroleum products in the zone and its environs throughout the yuletide at the official price.
