Ajimobi also advised the corporation to form security committee that would monitor the activities of its various unions.

Speaking at the event, the Group Managing Director of the NNPC, Dr Maikanti Baru, urged Oyo and Osun State Governments to assist the corporation in curbing activities of pipeline vandals.

Baru made the appeal on Wednesday during the re-inauguration of the loading operations in NNPC, Ibadan depot.

The Director noted that vandalism of pipelines will affect the operations of the corporation.

He warned the vandals to desist from their nefarious act, that their illegal activity was detrimental to the national economic growth.

It could be recalled that, Ibadan Depot of the NNPC suspended loading operations in 2015 due to incessant pipeline vandalism but Baru, on assumption of duty in the corporation, promised to resuscitate the depot.

The Chairman, Petroleum Tankers Drivers (PTD), Chief Suleiman Oladiti, said that the NNPC Director has lived up to his promise of not leaving any stone unturned at ensuring re-activation of the various depots across the country.

He said members of PTD had been cooperating with the NNPC for the smooth distribution of petroleum products from Mosimi depot to various destinations throughout the time of loading suspension at Ibadan depot.

“In as much as the association appreciates the revamping and re-commissioning of the deposit in Ibadan, it becomes imperative for the management of NNPC not to compromise on safety standard.

‘’This will go a long way in achieving the desired objectives,’’ he said.

Speaking Also, the Chairman, Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN), Alhaji Raheem Tayo, called on the people for effective maintenance of the pipelines to ensure constant supply of all petroleum products.
