Meanwhile, Dele Tajudeen, Chairman, South-West zone of Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) on Wednesday said, it may instruct its members in the zone to increase the pump prices of Premium Motor Spirit (P.M.S), as well as the A.G.O popularly called Diesel if the appropriate federal government’s regulatory agency fails to address the continuous non -supply of the products to its members.
