Nigerian Fuel Marketers Promise Nigerians ‘Mother of All Fuel Queues’ at Petrol Stations This Coming Week As Fuel Scarcity Looms

Dealers under the aegis of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) have denied being paid N74 billion by the Federal Government as bridging claims for the transportation of petroleum products, PraizeMedia report.

According to the sources, the marketers warned that Nigeria could witness “the mother of all queues” from next week if the Federal Government fails to pay the 12 months bridging claims being owed operators in the downstream oil sector.

However, Mohammed Shuaibu, Abuja-Suleja IPMAN Secretary countered the position of the NMDPRA on the payments of bridging claimsReferring to the Chief Executive of NMDPRA, Farouk Ahmed, the IPMAN official said:

“He (Ahmed) alleged he has paid marketers N74bn right? We have accused him of sabotaging our efforts by not paying us our bridging claims and that is the fact.
“We are not disputing because he says he paid, but we do urge him to identify the marketers he paid. Let him go through every detail. Let him retrieve the papers. Come out and provide an explanation to the public if you claim to have paid N74 billion to our members but we assert that you have not.”In any case, he will explain to the public and the presidency how the problem got to that level by the time we completely detool within the next week, since this one will result in the mother of all lines.”

Shuaibu added:

“You are owing a marketer, for example, N30m or N20m, you paid him N150,000 or N200,000 and you now go on air to say you have paid the marketer.

Is there any justification to that effect?”
