The Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL) has allocated petrol to marketers directly to ease scarcity.
The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) confirmed this on Tuesday.
The IPMAN President, Mr. Chinedu Okoronkwo, said the order was issued after a closed-door meeting of both parties.
Report says it was agreed that IPMAN members should load petrol at NIPCO, MRS and other assigned depots.
The marketers were, however, encouraged to upgrade their POS to G4 or G5 for payment efficiency.
“Members without POS are also advised to acquire it for efficiency,” Okoronkwo said in Lagos.
Okoronkwo urged IPMAN divisions across the country to open up their stations and start selling.
The NNPCL Managing Director, Lawal Sade; VP Downstream, Adeyemi Adetunji; IPMAN BoT Chair, Abdulkardir Aminu, and exco members attended the meeting.
