The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) has accused operators of Depots and Tank Farms of deliberately causing the lingering fuel scarcity in Calabar as they do not sell products to the “catchment area.”

The Chairman, Cross River and Akwa Ibom states branch of IPMAN, Mr. Lawrence Agim disclosed this Sunday in Calabar while speaking as a guest on ‘The Dialogue With Agba Jalingo; a topical issues radio program aired live 6 – 7PM on Hit 95.9FM where he said he has contacted relevant authorities over the matter.

Mr. Agim alleged that Independent Marketers around the “catchment area” of the almost 30 tank farms in Calabar do not often get products from them as the depot operators and tank farm owners prefer selling to marketers outside the state.

Their choice of supply according to Mr. Agim is one of the reasons why several fuelling stations are closed as there is no product to sell.
