The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) has called on Governor Chukwuma Soludo to clear an outstanding debt of N900.7 million. This debt is owed to 70 members of the association for diesel supplied to the Anambra government in 2022.
The letter to Mr Soludo was signed by Chinedu Anyaso and Emeka Iloafor, the chairman and secretary of IPMAN, respectively.
The debt was for March and April 2022, being the period they were approved to supply after the exit of the previous administration before they were directed to stop by the current administration.
IPMAN has appealed to Soludo to clear the outstanding debts, which had been verified to enable the affected members already going out of business to remain afloat. The association has expressed its concern over the financial strain this debt has placed on its members and hopes for a swift resolution.
