Following an amicable resolution of the points of difference, the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) announced that it had canceled the suspension notice it had previously delivered to its members.
Earlier on Monday, the group had written a notice to its members ordering them to stop selling gasoline and to close all of their filling stations.
However, the group notified LEADERSHIP that the problems had been fixed and that its members could again carry on business as usual.
Spokesman of IPMAN office in Maiduguri, Borno State, where suspension notice emanated from, Abdulkadir Mustapha, told LEADERSHIP on Tuesday via telephone that, “Yes, the suspension notice is confirmed as genuine but we have already resolved the issue and directed all the members to start dispensing fuel since an hour ago.”
In a letter dated February 6, 2023, and signed in Maiduguri, Borno State by Mohammed Kuluwu, chairman of IPMAN, the marketers were also instructed to postpone payment for product orders from the source until further notice.
The association said the decision followed “the critical situation as it affect our sourcing and selling of product at lose and the action of the authority to impose the selling of product at a lose price on our side.”
