Hike in fuel price: Stop panic buying – IPMAN tells Nigerians


The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) has warned motorists against panic buying, assuring that there is enough fuel on ground.

Alhaji Suleiman Yakubu, IPMAN National Public Relations Officer said that the long queues in some parts of Abuja were due to panic buying.

Yakubu told our Correspondent on Monday in Abuja that “there is no fuel scarcity, there is enough on ground.”

“People should not fear and do panic buying as there is enough fuel in reserve.”

A taxi driver Mr Ezeh Obi said that some petrol stations were not selling fuel, which might have resulted to panic buying and the long queues in Abuja.

He urged petroleum products regulators to ensure that all fuel stations with stock were selling.

Our Correspondent reports that some filling stations in Abuja were seen with long queues as motorists were trying to buy petrol. .
