Petroleum marketers under the auspices of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria, IPMAN, on Friday threw their weight behind President Muhammadu Buhari in his re-election bid.
The body adopted Buhari as its candidate during a courtesy visit of its National Executive Committee to the State House, Abuja.
Speaking on behalf of the group, the National President, Chinedu Okoronkwo, thanked the President for his support to the industry.
Noting that the country was faced with frequent problem of petroleum products supply before Buhari’s administration, he said that there is free flow of petroleum products under Buhari.
He also said that the industry was enmeshed in deep corruption before Buhari’s administration, which is now a thing of the past.
He said “We are solidly behind your reelection bid. In our meetings, we have adopted you as our candidate.”
“Your success in the election will be a success for Nigeria,” he added.
He also assured that there will be no fuel scarcity in the country throughout the period of the general elections.
Stressing that the association is ready to continue to work with the Buhari administration to surmount remaining problems in the industry, he disclosed that the association is planning to set up refineries in the country.
President Buhari thanked the group for adopting him as their candidate for the election.
