The Independent Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) has told Nigerians that the current gasoline crisis and price spike will be over in two weeks.

This promise was delivered by Mike Osatuyi, IPMAN’s National Operations Controller, during Arise Television’s Morning Show on Wednesday, February 1, 2023.

Osatuyi further claimed that marketers are working together to guarantee that the country’s persistent fuel scarcity is not just alleviated, but that fuel is also offered at reasonable prices.

He went on to say that all parties have agreed to sell petroleum at reasonable rates in order to alleviate the burden on Nigerians.

In order to bring the ongoing gasoline scarcity to an end as soon as possible, a meeting was convened on Tuesday, January 31, 2023, between the Nigerian National Petroleum Company Limited (NNPCL) and all other stakeholders across the downstream petroleum value chain, according to the Controller.

Osatuyi’s words: Yesterday, there was a meeting in Abuja and the president of IPMAN was there and he gave me feedback on the meeting. So, I can say the NNPC is ready to find a solution to the crisis. They’ve now agreed that they will open more depots for IPMAN to be loading products through their platform at official price and this is what we have been clamouring for for years.

“From what I gathered now, they are given 14 days to clean up the mess. By the next two weeks, we should be able to buy at a very reasonable price. We must all work in the interest of Nigerians and let Nigerians benefit from this subsidy.

Remember that the Nigerian Midstream and Downstream Petroleum Regulatory Authority (NMDPR) had identified smuggling as the primary source of the problem, which Osatuyi agreed with.

To stem the trend, he said all hands must be on deck, while also urging the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers to warn its members against diverting petroleum trucks to neighboring nations.

Osatuyi’s words: When it comes to all the challenges causing the fuel crisis, you can’t rule out the bad eggs across all strata of the system. But at the same time, it takes everyone to say drop this nonsense and let us be born again.”
