IBIA Refutes IBIA-Nigeria

Tuesday, November 19, 2002
The International Bunker Industry Association (IBIA) says it has nothing to do with a newly-formed association in Nigeria which is using its name. IBIA-Nigeria, formed by Raymond Anyiam-Osigwe, has no connection with IBIA, and has not sought permission to use IBIA's name. Ian Adams, secretary general of IBIA, says, "We have asked IBIA-Nigeria not to use the IBIA name, as it may cause confusion. IBIA is a global organisation which represents the international bunker industry and includes active members from all sectors of the bunker industry and all around the world. IBIA-Nigeria appears to be a group of Nigerian bunker suppliers who have banded together and are using our name without permission. It has nothing to do with IBIA, and although we have told them it is wrong to use our name, they still persist."
