Lagos — The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria, IPMAN has directed its members to shun call to shutdown services in the South East.
Alhaji Danladi Garba Pasali, IPMAN National Secretary, gave the warning in a statement on Saturday, denying 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.”
