The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) has entered into a strategic partnership with NIMEX Petroleum Group to import 100,000 metric tonnes of petroleum products into the country.
This, according to a statement by National President of IPMAN, Lawson Obasi, will complement the laudable efforts of the Federal Government in driving a sustainable deregulation policy for the sector.
Obasi said this after the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding with NIMEX Petroleum Group.
He said that the product which would be imported by NIMEX Petroleum Group would be distributed to its members across the country to augument supply received from NNPC and other sources.
He also said that the product would go a long way in making petrol available in the country, adding that the quantum of petrol received from the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) was not sufficient for its members.
He said that IPMAN is not unmindful of the positive effect of the partnership to its complementary effort to bringing in petroleum products to service the dire needs of our members.
