The national President of the Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN), Elder Chinedu Okoronkwo has unveiled his blueprint for the leadership of the association in Awka, the Anambra state capital.
Elder Okoronkwo is expected to deliver his keynote address and declare the maiden Annual General meeting (AGM) of the body since December 14, 2018 verdict of the Supreme Court, which affirmed him as the authentic national President of IPMAN.
According to the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the association, Alhaji Yakubu Sulaiman, the Awka meeting was to brainstorm on the way forward after the prolonged leadership tussle between Okoronkwo and Chief Obasi Lawson that ended on December 14,2108 with the Supreme Court judgement.
Sulaiman noted also that the meeting was holding for the first time in Awka, Anambra state. That in line with the IPMAN President’s post court judgement media briefing, they would use the opportunity of the AGM to take some far reaching decisions to reposition the association and recover some lost grounds in the industry and among stakeholders.
Members from all zones of the association nationwide and its Katampe Abuja Headquarters have arrived the Awka Wonderland venue ahead the meeting; which had coincided with the traditional marriage ceremony of the daughter of the pioneer National President, Chief Bestman Anekwe at Adazi-Ani, Anaocha council area of Anambra state.
