IPMAN Strike: Petrol Sells for N2,000 Per Liter in Adamawa

Petrol is currently selling at N2,000 per litre in Adamawa state.

This is as a result of ongoing strike by the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria, IPMAN, Adamawa/Taraba chapter.

The IPMAN Chairman, Dahiru Buba, stated this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Yola on Tuesday.

He said the strike was occasioned by incessant harassment of its members and illegal seizures of their tankers carrying petrol by officers of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS).

He said customs officers had abandoned their designated areas of operation at the borders and were now targeting legitimate businesses in metropolitan and local government areas.

According to him, these have led to financial losses, artificial scarcity and a hike in product prices and the strike will continue until NCS stops their activities.

Recall that on June 10, the Comptroller-General of the NCS, Adewale Adeniyi, during a news briefing in Yola, solicited the support and cooperation of all stakeholders in the fight against smuggling, especially petrol.

He said that the smuggling of petroleum products across the country’s borders was a sabotage of Nigeria’s economy.

Adeniyi therefore solicited the cooperation and support of all Nigerians with security agencies to curb the menace.
