Adulterated Petrol Has Been Removed From The Market – IPMAN

Petroleum marketers have explained that the long fuel queues, which recently surfaced in Lagos, Abuja, and some parts of the country are caused by the distribution of some adulterated products which has now been removed from the market, Channels TV reports.

President of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN), Chinedu Okoronkwo, disclosed this Wednesday, during an interview on Channels Television breakfast programme, Sunrise Daily.

According to him, the queues may persist due to the ripple effect of the initial distribution of the product.

“Off-spec petroleum was brought and people began to see some of the damages and the relevant authorities have come out plainly to explain what happened.

“In the system, any destruction of maybe two or three days can escalate the issue for up to one week. I can tell you that the product has been removed from the market but the ripples caused are still there. I believe before the end of this week, everything should normalise,” he said.

He also stated that retailers have removed the contaminated petrol and the new products will soon be in full circulation.

“The new products are coming, you can see that some stations have started selling but the problem caused is humongous, that is why we are suffering the effect,” Okonronkwo added.
