IPMAN tasks mem­bers on down­stream oper­a­tion de­vel­op­ment

Daily Trust - - BUSINESS / NEWS - From Mo­hammed Shosanya, La­gos

The In­de­pen­dent Petroleum Mar­keters As­so­ci­a­tion of Nigeria (IPMAN) has im­plored its mem­bers, na­tion­wide, to di­rect their at­ten­tion to the re­vival of the na­tion’s petroleum down­stream sec­tor.

The as­so­ci­a­tion’s charge was con­tained in a com­mu­niqué is­sued at the end of its Na­tional Ex­ec­u­tives Coun­cil (NEC) meet­ing which held in La­gos at the weekend

Al­haji Dan­ladi Pasali, Spe­cial As­sis­tant on Me­dia to the IPMAN Na­tional Pres­i­dent, signed the com­mu­niqué which ex­plained that the mem­bers needed to fo­cus their at­ten­tion on so­cio-eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment rather than on cre­at­ing na­tional dis­or­der.

It said the as­so­ci­a­tion was com­mit­ted to a cred­i­ble elec­tion to usher in new ad­min­is­tra­tion in IPMAN, as­sur­ing that the as­so­ci­a­tion would en­sure ef­fec­tive dis­tri­bu­tion of petroleum prod­ucts across the coun­try. Ac­cord­ing to state­ment, IPMAN lead­er­ship has ap­pealed to war­ring mem­bers to be law abid­ing in the in­ter­est of na­tional de­vel­op­ment.

The com­mu­niqué said: “We are ap­peal­ing to all our mem­bers to be law abid­ing, pre­pare for the up­com­ing elec­tions which will soon be con­ducted for el­i­gi­ble can­di­dates who wish to vie for any of­fice at the na­tional, zonal and de­pots po­si­tion as the case may be.

“We also ap­peal to our mem­bers to carry on with their le­gal and nor­mal businesses with­out the fear of any­thing in or­der to serve our father­land the as­so­ci­a­tion pri­mary ob­jec­tive of sup­ply­ing petroleum prod­ucts through­out the coun­try.”

It said that the ten­ure of Al­haji Aminu Ab­dulka­dri-led na­tional ex­ec­u­tives will ter­mi­nate on 27 May 2014, adding that the Federal High Court judg­ment in Port Har­court, nul­li­fy­ing the Ab­dulka­dri-led ex­ec­u­tives’ ten­ure has been ap­pealed against.
