COVID-19: IPMAN hales NNPC over constant supply of petroleum in Kano



Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) has lauded the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) for ensuring stable supply to marketers in depots in spite of the Coronavirus crisis.

Bashir Danmalam, IPMAN Chairman in Kano, made the commendation while speaking to newsmen at Kano NNPC Depot on Sunday.

Danmalam also commended the Department of Petroleum Resources (DPR) for prompt services during the stay at home order in many parts of the country.


“We commend the patriotic zeal and commitments of the NNPC leadership across all levels as well as the commitment of the leadership of Petroleum Equalization Fund (PEF) in ensuring the availability of the petroleum products”, he said.


According to him, the effort would also complement the Federal Government’s efforts to cushion the effects of the restriction measures put in place to curb the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic.


Danmalam said that IPMAN in collaboration with NNPC Kano depot have intensified efforts to ensure that all filling stations provide uninterrupted service to the people.

He assured  that the collaboration between the organisation and the corporation would ensure steady supply and distribution of petroleum products to retail outlets in the Kano zone and the country.


The  chairman also commended Gov. Abdullahi Ganduje for ensuring that petrol tankers were exempted in the restriction on vehicular movements in the state. 


He said, ”Loading activities are going on unhindered in the depot and we are working round the clock to see that economic activities are not disrupted.

“We shall continue to observe strict personal hygiene, social distancing and heed advice of health officials,” he added.
