The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN), Borno State Chapter, on Tuesday directed its members to immediately reopen all its outlets across the state.
The association said this in a statement by its chairman, Mohammed Kuluwu.
The state chapter of IPMAN had earlier ordered its members to suspend payments for petroleum products and other operations until further notice.
The association said the decision followed the loss being recorded by its members who are being compelled by the government and its agencies to sell petroleum products at certain prices.

“You are all hereby directed to suspend selling at all filling stations and also suspend payment of ordering products from source until further notice,” the statement said.
Premium Times reports that in another statement on Tuesday, the association directed its members in the state to resume operations.
“Having met with the concerned authority, all filling stations should open with immediate effect and continue selling while the association continues with further consultation and accordingly keeps you informed,” the statement said.
During a telephone interview with Premium Times on Tuesday, the spokesperson of the association in the state, Abdulkadir Mustapha, confirmed the new directive.
“Yes, the suspension notice is genuine but we have already resolved the issue and directed all our members to reopen their stations,” he said.
