IPMAN Inaugurates New Ore Depot Caretaker Committee

The leadership of Western Zone of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) has assured Nigerians of effective distribution of petroleum products during and after the general election across the hinterland of the country.
Chairman, Western Zone of IPMAN, Alhaji Debo Ahmed, gave the assurance during the inauguration of Caretaker Committee to steer the affairs of the Ore Depot pending when proper election is conducted.
According to Ahmed, following the expiration of the tenure of Ore Depot Executives and shift in the general election, the leadership of Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) has inaugurated a Caretaker Committee to ensure affective distribution of products in Ore among members.
While administering the oath of office to the Caretaker Committee members, the Legal Adviser, IPMAN Western zone, Prince Doyin Ajidagba, urged them to discharge their duties without fear or favour but with justice and equity to all members of the Ore Depot.
The setting up of a Caretaker Committee becomes imperative due to shift in date of election originally slated for March 24, 2015.
Ahmed, the zonal chairman said: “IPMAN Western zone hereby constitutes a Caretaker Committee for Ore Depot to pilot the affairs of IPMAN Ore Depot for the next three months effective from Friday, March 13, 2015 at the first instance.
“The Zonal Executive Council took this decision on the grounds that the IPMAN Ore Depot election had earlier been fixed for March 24, 2015 without envisaging shift in Nigeria’s general election slated for March 28, 2015 and the security situation usually accompanying the period of general election.”
He said that the sensitivity of petrol product supply at that period gives the Zonal Council no alternative than to shift the election, adding that the shift in election cannot afford the Depot administration to be left in a vacuum hence the constitution of the caretaker committee which is constitutionally allowed.
