The National Executive Council of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN), on Saturday, said its members would not partake in the proposed strike by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC).
The National Public Relations Officer of IPMAN, Alhaji Yakubu Suleiman, made this known in a statement issued in Lagos.
He stated that the national body of the association had instructed all IPMAN members to continue with their normal businesses while NLC goes ahead with the strike.
“We are calling on the NLC to realise that deregulation is inevitable. It remains the surest way to bring back our economy to normalcy.
“There is no country in the world that can sustain its economy without deregulating it.”
IPMAN advised Nigerians to cooperate with the government in ensuring that our economy grows,.
The NLC and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) had jointly announced a nationwide strike from Sept 28 over the recent hikes in electricity tariffs and petrol pump price.
