In a bid to encourage Nigerians to participate in the rescheduled elections, the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) has directed its members nationwide to reduce petroleum pump price from N145 per litre to N140.
This was made known yesterday, by the National President of the Association, Mr Chinedu Okoronkwo,
In a statement made available to newsmen and was signed by Bashir Dan-Malam, the association encouraged petroleum marketers in the country to give a #5 reduction on the pump price of petrol, so as to alleviate the sufferings of Nigerians in the electioneering period especially in view of the hardship occasioned by the postponement of the elections.
The statement reads: “IPMAN was prompted to slash N5 from the N145 per litre official Petroleum pump price in a bid to motivate Nigerians to return to vote again on February 23,” the statement read.
“We urge all our members across Nigeria to immediately reduce the fuel pump price from N145 per litre to N140 per litre.
“This is because of the political situation that hit the country after INEC suddenly announced the postponement of presidential and National Assembly elections after Nigerians were fully prepared.
“We are all aware how Nigerians travelled to different parts of the country in order to exercise their civic duty; unfortunately, they heard asad news of postponement of the polls.
“This made us deem it fit to reduce the pump price in order to ease their suffering, and to also motivate them to travel again to exercise their franchise on February 23.”
