Ondo: IPMAN Protests Illegal Evacuation Of Diesel, Kerosene, PMS 



Concerned members of Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigerian (IPMAN), Ondo State chapter has raised the alarm over illegal evacuation of diesel, kerosene and premium motor spirit(PMS) from NNPC depot in Ore, Ondo State.

It is a known fact that Ore Depot has been neglected for over fifteen years and it is worrisome to know that the products meant for Ondo and Ekiti states are currently being diverted to the northern part of the country in pretext of shortages in the North. 

Salisu Ojo, who spoke on behalf of his co-marketers on Sunday disclosed that some people came with letters from NNPC headquarters to evacuate the diesel and kerosene. 

According to him, they later discovered that the people who evacuated the products ended up diverting and selling the products to non existing companies in Lagos to aid their diversion.

Having discovered the development, the marketers protested when the same set of people came with another letters to evacuate premium motor spirit (PMS) from the depot.

The marketers lamented that the people of Ondo and Ekiti states are currently suffering from nonavailability of diesel, kerosene and PMS which had led to long queues at filling stations mostly in the state capital, Akure.

Long queues returned to filling stations in Akure and some cities within the state as a result of scarcity of petroleum products and different filling stations have been selling the products at different pump prices.

Some filling stations sell PMS at N200 per litre while diesel sells at N1000.

The aggrieved marketers, however, called on relevant agencies to investigate where diesel and kerosene that were loaded last week went into and also to make sure that the remaining pms (petrol) at the depot spread across the two states, Ondo and Ekiti.
