The crises rock­ing the Kaduna State chap­ter of In­de­pen­dent Petroleum Mar­keters As­so­ci­a­tion of Nigeria (IPMAN), yes­ter­day, took a new di­men­sion as fac­tional mem­bers re­jected the pur­ported elec­tion held March 22, 2014.

Speak­ing on be­half of his group at a press con­fer­ence on be­half of the fac­tion back­ing the ousted chair­man, Mo­ham­madu Nda Kogi, Al­haji Ab­dul­fa­tah Mur­tala, the Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of Yusuffa Petroleum/ Gas Nig LTD and First Oil in­vest­ment Nig LTD, said they have re­solved not to ac­cept Al­haji Rabi’u Mo­hammed Yola and oth­ers as elected chair­man and ex­ec­u­tives re­spec­tively.

“We will never recog­nise these con­fused and self-im­posed lead­ers in the name of ex­ec­u­tives of Kaduna State chap­ter. We also call on mem­bers of IPMAN in Kaduna State to dis­re­gard the con­fu­sion be­ing per­pe­trated by some dis­grun­tled few mem­bers and re­ject in to­tal­ity, any at­tempt to dis­re­pute or sow seed of dis­cord among the rank and file of IPMAN mem­bers,” the group said.

It called on Kaduna State Gover­nor Mukhtar Ra­malan Yero to in­ter­vene, as a mat­ter of ur­gency, to avoid de­te­ri­o­ra­tion to un­con­trol­lable level.
