Petroleum marketers will not join planned strike – IPMAN

The National Executive Council of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN), on Saturday, has directed its members not to partake in the proposed strike by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC).

This was contained in a statement issued in Lagos by the National Public Relations Officer of IPMAN, Alhaji Yakubu Suleiman.

Suleiman stated that the national body of the association had instructed all IPMAN members to continue with their normal businesses while NLC goes ahead with the strike.

“We are calling on the NLC to realize that deregulation is inevitable. It remains the surest way to bring back our economy to normalcy.

“There is no country in the world that can sustain its economy without deregulating it.”

IPMAN advised Nigerians to cooperate with the government in ensuring that our economy grows,.

It would be recalled that the NLC and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) had jointly announced a nationwide strike from Sept 28 over the recent hikes in electricity tariffs and petrol pump price.
