The Depot and Petroleum Products Marketers Association (DAPPMA) have denied ever embarking on any shut-down of their depots and facilities.
“We have maintained that we would sell and load all petroleum products available to us even as delays in the payments of our reimbursement have continued to impede and adversely affect our operations. The suspension in loading in the last few days has been due to the strike embarked upon by PTD-NUPENG and NARTO. These two bodies had refused to load out/lift petroleum products for distribution from our depots,”
“The company is not owed a kobo under the PSF scheme as they cannot make any claim hence they do not feel the impact of non-payment of subsidy reimbursements, instead, the company stores petroleum products for NNPC/PPMC under a through arrangement as do a few other members of our association,”
“We reiterate that since the unions embarked on this action, we have been dialoguing with them to seek amicable ways of resolving this logjam bearing in mind its harrowing and debilitating impact on the Nigerian public and the masses,”
