The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) announced that drivers should desist from panic buying as fuel marketers have enough fuel in Nigeria.
This was disclosed by Alhaji Suleiman Yakubu, IPMAN National Public Relations Officer, who blamed the long queues spotted in some parts of the nation’s capital on panic buying from motorists.
“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,” said Yakubu.
