“It is important that we continue to abide by the protocols and safety measures put in place to combat the spread of Covid-19 in our communities”.
Mr and Mrs Paintsil were among dignitaries at the Lakeside Community as it burst into a frenzy of excitement with full Covid-19 protocols being observed.
The announcement by management that the first 200 customers would be served with free fuel spread like wildfire and within minutes of the launch ceremony, vehicles had lined the main road waiting to enter the station.
The official launch of the beautiful facility complete with a soon to be opened mart, service centre, washrooms and shops, attracted residents, local leaders, industry stakeholders and other distinguished functionaries.
Among the array of high profile personalities at the grand opening was the CEO of the Association of Oil Marketing Companies of Ghana (OMCG) Mr Kwaku Agyemang Duah who explained the significance of the new station in the community.
