Daily Trust - - BUSINESS - From An­drew Agbese, Kaduna

The Na­tional Pres­i­dent of the In­de­pen­dent Pe­tro­leum Mar­keters As­so­ci­a­tion of Nige­ria (IPMAN), Elder Chinedu Oko­ronkwo, has wel­comed moves cham­pi­oned by some anti-graft agen­cies to probe ac­counts of the as­so­ci­a­tion.

He said that prob­ing the ac­counts of the IPMAN would en­trench trans­parency in its af­fairs.

Oko­ronkwo, who was on a fa­mil­iari­sa­tion tour of de­pots in the coun­try, said in Kaduna that IPMAN was de­lighted that the cur­rent ad­min­is­tra­tion has de­cided to in­ves­ti­gate the ac­counts of the as­so­ci­a­tion with a view to set­ting records straight.

He said that the lead­er­ship of the as­so­ci­a­tion was in sup­port of the on­go­ing fight against cor­rup­tion and Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari-led ad­min­is­tra­tion.

He iden­ti­fied cor­rup­tion as the bane of de­vel­op­ment in Nige­ria.

The IPMAN pres­i­dent, speak­ing af­ter re­ceiv­ing the vote of con­fi­dence passed on him by the as­so­ci­a­tion’s mem­bers across the coun­try, said that he would con­tinue to sup­port ac­tions that were in in­ter­est of the mem­bers.

He said: “I want to as­sure those that have con­fi­dence in me that all prop­er­ties of the as­so­ci­a­tion that were stolen would be re­cov­ered.
