Rivers State IPMAN Chairman, Joseph Obele

The Chairman of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria, IPMAN, in Rivers State, Joseph Obele who is also the Governorship Candidate of AAC says the current price of petrol is caused by the Federal Government and not the Marketers.

He lamented that there is no product anywhere, that Nigerians should pay a deaf ear to the Federal Government’s false claims of availability of billions of litres of petrol they hear on the radio is not true, that the landing cost of importing fuel is five hundred naira as of today.

Explaining that only one depot out of the nineteen depots in Rivers State is selling to marketers, also in Lagos out of forty-five depots, only one is selling.

Joseph Obele however, appealed to the general public that the queues will soon disappear, but that Nigeria will continue to experience fuel scarcity until the refineries are fixed.
