The Kano State zone of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria, IPMAN, has assured the public of its commitment to ensure adequate supplies of petroleum products to its catchment areas of Kano, Katsina, Bauchi, Yobe and Jigawa states.
DAILY NIGERIAN reports that long queues had resurfaced at various filling stations in Abuja and its environs, following fuel scarcity occasioned by the #EndSARS protests across some states of the federation.
Recall that the IPMAN National Public Relations Officer, Suleiman Yakubu, had on Tuesday said the long queues in some parts of Abuja were due to fear of attacks by hoodlums.
Allaying fears of fuel scarcity in the Kano zone, the IPMAN Zonal Chairman, Bashir Dan-Mallam, assured motorists of the availability of the commodity, advising them against panic buying of the product.
He said: “There is no need for motorists and other members of the public to engage in panic buying of the commodity as we are assuring you of adequate and steady supply of petroleum products throughout this period.
“IPMAN will continue to support the Federal Government to ensure uninterrupted fuel supply across the nooks and crannies of the country,” he added.
Mr Dan-Mallam commended the Managing Director of the Pipelines and Products Marketing Company, PPMC, Lawal Musa, for directing various depots in the country to resume operations after the EndSARS protest across the country.
He noted that the introduction of the ‘Online Solution’ popularly known as ‘PPMC Customer Express Portal’ had eliminated all the stress marketers used to experience while carrying out their business.
“The new technology introduced by the PPMC gives customers the opportunity to transact their business online without any stress in addition the online solution will allow PPMC to serve you faster and better, within the confines of your homes or offices,” Dan-Malam added.
