The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) through its national operation controller, Mr Mike Osatuyi has said that the petrol price disparity across the various regions of the country could still be a challenge because various unions operating in the sector charge different levies which when factored into existing costs leads to different pump prices at different locations, Leadership reports.

He therefore advised that government should intervene and allow stakeholders and in particular the unions to come to a compromise. Speaking further he said, “We will want the NNPC to boost supply to deliver products to members who are earger to sell at the new price regime”.

Osatuyi also blamed the current price disparity to the inability of IPMAN members to source product from the NNPC, adding that once product is made available to members the issue of disparity in pump prices would be eliminated.
