The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria ( IPMAN) says it has made arrangements to sustain the supply and distribution of petroleum products during the current partial lockdown across the nation to curb Coronavirus
The Chairman, Kano Branch of IPMAN,  Alhaji Bashir Danmallam, announced this after an emergency meeting of members in Kano on Thursday.
According to him, the union is duty-bound to rise to the occasion and contribute its quota in the fight against the pandemic.
He told newsmen: “In Consideration of the pivotal role petroleum products play as the engine room of the economy, IPMAN as an essential service provider would keep all its outlets open for business to lessen the impact of the restrictions placed on people and businesses.
“We urge the government to continue to open all access to petroleum products for lifting to marketers.
“IPMAN also enjoined the NNPC, DPR, PPPRA, PEF and other relevant stakeholders in the downstream sector of the industry to complement government efforts in facilitating smooth and efficient unbroken chain of supply and distribution of products seamlessly.”
Danmallam advised members to observe directives of health officials on Coronavirus.
“We call on members to adhere strictly to the advice and directives of health officials from the Federal and states ministry of health and NCDC as well as local health officials.
“Our members and indeed the public should pay attention to personal hygiene and ensure a safe social distance and to always wear face masks, hand gloves, wash hands with soap and sanitizer and to always keep wipes,” he said.
