The Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria, Enugu Depot Community, has advised motorists and those on election duty in Anambra to buy sufficient petrol on Thursday.
Mr Chinedu Anyaso, Chairman of IPMAN in the zone, made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Awka on Wednesday.
Anyaso said the decision to close outlets was in line with the directive of the Anambra State Government that Thursday and Friday should be work-free days to enable workers to go to their voting locations.
He said the Police have also ordered total lockdown effective Thursday and that marketers would have to abide.
The chairman urged marketers to allow their staff and pump attendants who were eligible voters to travel and exercise their civic duty.
