the Independent Petroleum Marketers, IPMAN, has advised President Bola Tinubu to prioritize the swift completion of the ongoing renovation of the Port Harcourt refinery as a decisive solution to the persistent fuel distribution challenges.

The IPMAN Rivers State Chairman, Tekena Ikpaki, appealed in an interview with news men in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.

Ikpaki however praised the president for taking the initiative to reopen obsolete refineries, stressing that the move was more pressing now than ever.

He underscored the importance of access to the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation portals for IPMAN members, to buy products to prevent potential fuel scarcity in the state, adding that the reservoir to private depots cannot last for long, as seen in some parts of the country.
