JUST IN: DAPPMAN Shuts Down Operations

The Depot and Petroleum Products Marketers Association of Nigeria (DAPPMAN)  has  directed all its members to shut down operations at midnight of Sunday, December 9, 2018 until the Federal Government pays all the outstanding debt which it owed the marketers.

the association gave the directives to its members on Sunday in Lagos.

DAPPMAN’s declaration came less than 24 hours after the Federal Government announced that it would pay N236 billion to oil marketers this Friday as the first tranche of the outstanding subsidy claims that it owed members of the depot owners as well as those of the Major Oil Marketers Association of Nigeria.

Responding to an enquiry sent by our correspondent on whether the association would still proceed on strike despite the government’s latest promise, the Executive Secretary, DAPPMAN, Olufemi Adewole, replied, “Yes, we are proceeding, since we didn’t get the Federal Government’s assurances of receiving the funds which would help pay December salaries.”
