Edo Comm. for Mining, Oil and Gas, Uzamere, meets IPMAN, other stakeholders, harps on seamless distribution of petroleum products

The Honourable Commissioner for Mining, Oil and Gas in Edo State, Hon. Ethan Uzamere has charged petroleum marketers to continue to ensure the seamless distribution of petroleum products in the state.

Uzamere made this known when he met with the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association Of Nigeria, IPMAN, Edo State Chapter as well as other stakeholders in the State to address the impending strike by the Association.

According to him, "Government has provided a conducive environment for the stakeholders in the Petroleum distribution chain to carry out their business. The asset you control is necessary to the people of the state hence you cannot afford to go on strike especially when festivities are around the corner ".

Hon. Uzamere pointed out that government was aware of the internal crisis within the IPMAN body maintaining that government will take a position after meeting with the parties involved and considering all submissions made to it.

The Commissioner urged the marketers to properly scrutinize products they sell to citizens as the state cannot afford a case of explosion ocassioned by adulterated products.

He also appealed to them to adhere to the government approved pump price for petroleum products.

At the meeting were the Nigeria Upstream and Downstream Regulatory Commission, Independent Petroleum Marketers Association Of Nigeria, Major Oil Marketers Association of Nigeria, NSCDC, DSS, National Association of Road Transport Owners and Petroleum Tankers Drivers Association.
