“Fix Warri Refinery; stop deceiving Nigerians”, IPMAN to FG

The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria, (IPMAN), has called on the Federal Government to fix Warri Refinery and stop deceiving Nigerians under the guise of Turn-Around Maintenance (TAM) while they are doing nothing.

Chairman, Electoral Committee, Warri Depot and National Officer, IPMAN Mid-West zone, Chief Ben Odjugo, made this call in Warri, Delta State, during the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of IPMAN, Warri Depot, held at Government House, Annex, Warri.

The Association also appealed to the Federal Government to make petroleum products available to Warri Depot, just as they have called on authorities to stop diverting Petrolleum products meant for the Depot to private individuals.

According to IPMAN, “previous administrations have always said that they are doing turnaround maintenance but none of the eo called maintenance have made the Refinery to work. So until this government is seen to be working and they are able to make the Warri Refinery work; that is only when the Government of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu can prove to Nigerians that they are sincere”.

During the Annual General Meeting, the executive of IPMAN Warri Depot under Comrade Zino Onaemo, whose tenure had expired, was dissolved and a management team that will handle the affairs of the Depot pending resolution of all issues bedeviling the Depot was set up.

He spoke further, saying: “Because of what is happening in the Depot recently, the acrimony and series of court cases that have cropped-up in the course of this election, as law abiding citizens, we decided to put the election aside and set up a management team that will run the affairs of the Depot until election is conducted. For now, the management team will do the work of the Executive”.

The chairman of the Management Team, Harry Okenini, who was emotional promised that the team will do their best to ensure that they bring everybody together in a bid to move the Association to greater heights.

Delta State Governor, Sheriff Oborevwori, who was represented by the State’s Commissioner for Oil and Gas, Olorogun Vincent Oyibode, urged IPMAN to conduct themselves peacefully, promising that his administration will continue to support them.

Oborevwori added that IPMAN is key to the success of his administration, he appealed to members of the Association to remain focussed and united.

Earlier, the out-gone chairman, Comrade Zino Onaemo, while giving his stewardship report during the AGM, lamented that he could not fulfill some of the promises he made when he was elected because the Warri Refinery was not working and the Depot was not getting enough petroleum products from the Federal Government.
