The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) has called on motorists and users of products in the Southeast not to panic as there will be regular supply during Easter.
Mr Chinedu Anyaso chairman of IPMAN, Enugu depot community in charge of Anambra, Ebonyi and Enugu said in Awka on Friday that a good number of trucks were loading at the depots.
He added that under the current supply situation there was nothing that there would be product shortage.
“There is no shortage of product now, our members have enough products and more are on the way, so nobody should panic, transporters should not take undue advantage of travellers in the name of petrol scarcity,” he said.
Anyaso however regretted that markets in the zone had relied on depots outside the zone for sourcing of products for over 15 years when the Enugu Depot went moribund.
He said marketers in the zone had faced additional operational challenges associated with long distance and bad road in the course of transporting products from Lagos, Warri and Calabar.
He urged the Federal Government to revamp and reactivate the Enugu Depot to ease the challenges of downstream operators in the zone.
Anayaso also called in governors of the Southeast to support the siting tank farms and building of refinery in the region.
