• Govt promises N650b payment
Depot and Petroleum Products Marketers Association of Nigeria (DAPPMAN), and Major Oil Marketers Association of Nigeria (MOMAN) yesterday suspended their 14-days strike notice to the Federal Government owing to the government’s assurance to pay the outstanding N650billion debts to the marketers.
DAPPMAN Chairman, Prince Dapo Abiodun and Executive Secretary, Olufemi Adewole respectively made this disclosure in a statement.
It said DAPPMAN/MOMAN have suspended the issued 14 days ultimatum, saying they are pleading “with all our staff under the various umbrella Unions: NARTO, PENGASSAN, NUPENG/PTD, to please bear with us whilst this approval for appropriation by the NASS is being deliberated on and processed, which we believe will not exceed two weeks in view of the adverse implications of any delays.”
They appealed to all marketers to ensure there is no disruption in the supply and distribution of petrol nationwide.
