#EndSARS protests could lead to fuel scarcity, IPMAN warns‎


The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria on Friday warned that the ‎ongoing #EndSARS protests across the country could lead to petroleum scarcity.

The association said hoodlums have been attacking petroleum tankers thereby stalling operations at petroleum depots across the country.

IPMAN Chairman in Rivers State, Dr Joseph Obele, stated this on a programme on Rhythm 93.7fm.‎

Obele noted that about 10 petroleum tankers had been attacked and destroyed nationwide by the protesters, although lives were not lost.‎

He added that if the situation doesn’t improve before stocked petroleum products ran out in filling stations, scarcity would be inevitable.

“About 10 of our trucks have been attacked nationwide by protesting youths, although there have not been casualties.

“Supply and distribution of petroleum products haven’t really been smooth being that 90 per cent of our supply came from Lagos and there has been a skeletal supply schedule in Lagos for the past one week.

“Thursday’s case was worse, all the depots in Nigeria were shut down, we don’t produce these products, we buy from depots and tank farms and if these depots do not give us products, we fear that when we run out of stock, petroleum scarcity will happen,” he said.  ‎

However, he assured that the association would not be embarking on strike.‎
