Adebayo made the pledged during the official sworn in of new executives of IPMAN in Lagos. The elected chairman advised members to be more proactive and sincere in the course of discharging their duties.
Adebayo however, warns members to desist from any forms of abuses on products distributions in their respective stations. According to him, I appeal to you to be steadyfast and upright in ensuring transparency and objectivity in all your business transaction.
“I will not hesitate to seal or sanction any members caught engaging in sharp malpractices.
“I promised to ensure that products will be regular and timely in Ejigbo depot so that marketers will make more profits in return,’’ he said Adebayo said, “We are businessmen, my aim is to ensure the progress and development of our association. “I will also ensure promoting individual business with fairness in the distribution of the products,” he added. The IPMAN Ejigbo boss said that he would engage in ensuring peaceful resolution of the crisis in the National chapter of the association.
Adebayo urged Nigerians to embrace Federal Government policy on privatisation of the nation’s refineries because this would solve the scarcity of the petroleum products. The chairman said that privatisation would encourage private sector participation in building their own refinery. He said that this would also discourage importation of the products from foreign countries and provided employment opportunity for unemployed graduates.
