IPMAN to Reduce Petrol Pump Price from N145 per litre to N140 per litre
Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) through a statement released by its national President, Chinedu Okoronkwo, has announced that Petroleum price will reduce from N145 per litre to N140 per litre across the nation starting from Monday, 20th February.
According to IPMAN, the reduction of price which will last for only 5 days is temporal. The aim of the price slash is for voters to be able to travel to their various voting communities to cast their vote.
Recall that INEC suddenly postponed the election date from 16th February to 23rd February for Presidential elections and National Assemblies elections and also, 2nd of March to 9th March for Governorship and House of Assemblies elections.
IPMAN to Reduce Petrol Pump Price to motivate travelers to exercise their franchise on February 23
See the statement below;
“IPMAN was prompted to slash N5 from the N145 per litre official Petroleum pump price in a bid to motivate Nigerians to return to vote again on February 23. We urge all our members across Nigeria to immediately reduce the fuel pump price from N145 per litre to N140 per litre.
“This is because of the political situation that hit the country after INEC suddenly announced the postponement of presidential and National Assembly elections after Nigerians were fully prepared. We are all aware how Nigerians traveled to different parts of the country in order to exercise their civic duty; unfortunately, they heard a sad news of postponement of the polls.
“This made us deem it fit to reduce the pump price in order to ease their suffering, and to also motivate them to travel again to exercise their franchise on February 23.”
