Petroleum marketers under the aegis of Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria IPMAN have threatened to shut down 900 filling stations across Lagos.

The association accused the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) of undersupplying its members with Premium Motor Spirit and frustrating them on an earlier agreement to supply to them at N133 per litre.

The association noted that if a resolution is not reached between all concerned parties, its members in Lagos State, and parts of Ogun State, may be forced to shut their filling stations by December 11.

In a statement signed by the association’s principal officers led by chairman, Alhaji Alanamu Balogun, it complained about the shortage of product supply to its Ejigbo satellite depot which it claims serves more than 900 filling stations in Lagos
