The Independent Crude Marketers Organization of Nigeria (IPMAN) has suspended its strike and directed its members at the Enugu depot to resume the render of crude products.
“As a resultant of the intervention of higher authorities in the unwarranted and unprovoked invasion of our secretariat at Enugu depot, the National Executive Commission (NEC) of IPMAN has called off the strike activity.
“Normal services and operations will now resume in the affected states of Enugu, Ebonyi and Anambra to allow for fruitful discussions, the National President of IPMAN, Sanusi Fari, said in a statement issued on Saturday.
The national leadership of IPMAN had on Thur directed the withdrawal of services at the Enugu loading depot of the NNPC with effect from Fri.
The NEC attributed the directive to an alleged onset on the organization’s secretariat at the Enugu depot on Thur by men of the Nigeria Police force Forcefulness.
IPMAN members consequently halted the render of crude products to Enugu, Ebonyi and Anambra, a state of affairs that caused a important hike in the pump damage of petrol in the states.
Fari stated that the NEC of IPMAN reviewed the state of affairs and directed members to resume their services and operations.
The Word Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that as of Fri, a litre of petrol was sold for as high as N250 at fuel stations and N500 at roadside alternative outlets in the affected states.
The pump damage of petrol has returned to the regulated damage of N165 next the suspension of the IPMAN strike.
