John Alexander Ackon supported by Adumhene, Baafour Adjei Kesse IV to cut the tape
The Ashanti Regional Minister, John Alexander Ackon has entreated Ghanaians to support indigenous companies by patronizing their products and services.
According to him, patronizing Ghanaian products and services will ease pressure on the cedi and ultimately help grow the country’s economy.
Mr Ackon made this known while speaking at the inauguration of a refurbished Ghana Oil Company (GOIL) service station at Santasi, Kumasi.
GOIL has embarked on massive re-branding and facelift of its service stations which has culminated in the increase in the number of stations from about 160 to over 250.
The Minister tasked GOIL management team to maintain the quality of its products on the market, entreating Ghanaians to patronize GOIL products and services.
Managing Director of GOIL, Patrick A. K. Akorli, paid tribute to customers of the company, adding that consumers have mostly benefited from the deregulation of the industry.
He said GOIL has raised the standards in terms of delivering quality products and appealed to Ghanaians to embrace successful national brands like GOIL.
Mr Akorli said the company has over 16,000 shareholders, stressing that his outfit intends to forge ahead to enter the West African market on the strength of huge investments in Bunkering Aviation and Bitumen business.
The Adumhene, Barfour Adjei Kesse IV, who represented the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, commended GOIL for providing good products to its customers.
In attendance were GOIL Brand Ambassador, Azumah Nelson, the playing body and management of Asante Kotoko, who are sponsored by GOIL and the Kokofuhene, Barima Offe Akwasi Okogyeasuo II.
The refurbished service station has a modern service centre and courtyard, a well-stocked GO Shop and a fully-equipped tire centre.
