JUST IN: Petroleum marketers threaten strike over DPR extortion
The Suleja/Abuja Unit of Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria has threatened to down tool on Monday over alleged extortion by officials of the Department of Petroleum Resources.
Tribune reported that IPMAN said its members would be given a directive not to load from Suleja depot in Niger State.
The statement was made by the Chairman of the Unit, Alhaji Yahaya Ahman Alhassan, during an interactive session in Abuja.
Alhassan stated that the association seeks an explanation as to DPR's incessant demand for daily sales activities from filling stations.
"IPMAN has no other alternative other than instructing our members not to load from Suleja depot in Niger State to express our frustrations after all efforts to make DPR officials desist from unethical practices failed.
"These issues have to be resolved before we can commence lifting of products from the depot," he said.
The strike action is expected to commence on Monday, June 21, 2021.
