The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) has said there was no directive to members to shutdown services in the South East.
IPMAN National Secretary, Alhaji Danladi Garba Pasali, in a statement, yesterday, disssociated the association from the purported call on members to shutdown services.
According to him, IPMAN did not hold any National Executive Council (NEC) meeting, let alone resolve to shutdown services in the South East, contrary to what an impostor president allegedly said in a statement on September 16, 2021.
He said: “That the police command in Enugu State intervened was a right thing in the right direction, more so that they were out to enforce the rule of law, having drawn inspiration from the directives of the Deputy Inspector-General of Police, whose finding affirms the Supreme Court’s judgement that has upheld the valid leadership of Elder Chinedu Okoronkwo as the legitimate President of IPMAN.”

“We call on members to jettison any call or plan shutdown of services, as no contemplation was made to that effect, while also appealing to the general public particularly those in Southeast not to panic.”
