The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN), Kano State has alerted the Federal Government of a decision by some private depot owners to raise the pump price of petroleum products in order to cause a fresh fuel crisis in the country
PMAN Chairman Kano chapter, Bashir Danmallam, made the accusations in a statement issued to newsmen in Kano on Friday.
He said some of such private Depot owners had increased the price of the commodity from N148 per litre to between N153 and N155 per litre since on Friday last week.
He said the association found it necessary to alert the government in order not to blame its members in the event they increase the price of the commodity as they would not sell the product at loss.
“IPMAN is accusing some private depot owners of trying to sabotage the Federal Government by unilaterally increasing their prices despite the fact that the government has not raised the fuel pump price.
