Nigerians Should Desist From Fuel Panic Buying – Marketers, IPMAN Says Amid Scarcity Scare

October 4, 2022

The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) on Tuesday said there were enough products on ground for sale.

IPMAN’s Public Relations Officer, PRO, Alhaji Suleiman Yakubu who urged Abuja residents to desist from panic buying of fuel, made this known during interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in reaction to the reappearance of queues at some fueling stations in the Federal Capital Territory.

He described the panic purchase and long queues as unnecessary.

“I advise Nigerians to stop panic buying, as we have enough Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), popularly known as petrol on ground.

“We want to assure the buyers that government and marketers are doing everything possible to ensure that the products are available and avoid any impulse buying,” he said.

Motorists and residents of some major cities in the South-West region and in Abuja, the nation's capital, had in June 2022 experienced the return of long queues at petrol stations.
