Adewole quoted Akpani to have, in her acceptance speech, espoused the vision of DAPPMAN which she said was to unite members, advise, encourage and support government to churn out policies that promote the economic well-being of the nation in general and the downstream petroleum sector in particular.
He said the new executive committee, which has since been introduced to sector regulatory and complimentary agencies had since began coordinating the affairs of the association.
