Members of Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) in Anambra, have suspended their planned strike in the state scheduled to hold on Thursday over levy and other issues.
Mr Chinedu Anyaso, Chairman of IPMAN, Enugu Depot Community, who announced the suspension said that the government and the association had met and reached some agreements which addressed their demands.
The shutdown was to protest multiple levies by government agencies, police harassment and indebtedness by Transport Company of Anambra State (TRACAS), to Siluch Oil and Gas Limited.
Recall that IPMAN on Aug. 4, issued an ultimatum to shut down the state after 21 working days if the government did not revert to the unified annual levy agreed by both parties.
It also asked the government to withdraw all court cases against their members.
Anyaso said that the suspension was based on the communiqué jointly signed by the association and state government after a meeting.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports that Prof. Solo Chukwudebelu, the Secretary to the Anambra Government, represented the state while Anyaso signed for IPMAM.(NAN)
