In a public Hearing held in room 022 of the Senate wing on Thursday, there was a mild drama which almost cause a rowdy session as three persons introduced themselves as president of the Independent Petroleum Marketers of Nigeria (IPMAN).
The Senate committee headed By Senator Kabiru Marafa was ordered to cut short its Christmas and New Year recess and invite the Group Managing Director NNPC, Minister of Petroleum Resources and Major Marketers to explain what was responsible for the return of fuel queues across the country during the 2017 Yuletide period.
The first person to introduce himself was Obasi Lawson, before Sanusi Fari and Okoronko Chinedu, also followed suit.
“I am Okoronko Chinedu, elected IPMAN Chairman affirmed by the Appeal Court two week ago,” Mr. Okoronkwo said. Almost immediately, Fari rose up to introduce himself also as IPMAN president. The Senate hearing became rowdy a the three IPMAN factional presidents struggled to take the floor.
Marafa called on the permanent secretary of IPMAN to meet with the three to have a common ground for presentation to the hearing.
