In ensuring prompt and effective distribution of petroleum products within Lagos metropolis, the newly elected chairman of Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) Ejigbo-Satellite, Mr AJayi Adebayo, has assured its members of equal distribution of products during his tenure.
Adebayo made the pledged during the official swearing in of new executives of IPMAN in Lagos.
The elected chairman advised members to be more proactive and sincere in the course of discharging their duties.
Adebayo however warned members to desist from any form of abuses on products distributions in their respective stations. He appealed for their steadfast and committed efforts in ensuring transparency and objectivity in their business transactions.
“I promise to ensure that products will be regular and timely in Ejigbo depot so that marketers will make more profits in return and serve the people better.
“We are businessmen, my aim is to ensure the progress and development of our association. I will also ensure promoting individual business with fairness in the distribution of the products. However, I will not hesitate to seal or sanction any member caught engaging in sharp malpractices,’’ he said
He said he would engage in ensuring peaceful resolution of the crisis in the national chapter of the association just as he urged Nigerians to embrace the federal government policy on privatisation of the nation’s refineries as that would solve the problem of scarcity of petroleum products.
The chairman said that privatisation would encourage private sector participation in building their own refineries.
He said that this would also discourage importation of the products from foreign countries and provide employment opportunities for unemployed graduates.
Other elected members include Mr Ayo Alanamu as vice chairman, Prince Kunle Oyenuga; Princess Bello Adeola, treasurer and Mr Fagbohun Oluwaseun, financial secretary. Others include Mr Ojudun Kehinde, legal adviser; Mr Olunuga Oluwatoyin, PRO and Mr Okunola Ridwan as welfare officer
