As part of its corporate drive to support the well-being of customers and the general public, amidst the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), Santol Energy, an indigenous oil marketing company is embarking on a public health campaign to give away free hand sanitisers to drivers and passengers.
In addition to this, the company has also announced a reduction in prices of products at all fuel stations across the country in line with the drop in global crude prices, as counter-measures continue frantically to help contain and stop the spread of COVID-19 goes on.
From this moment a litre of petrol is now selling at GH₵4.85 cedis per litre, down from GH₵5.25 a litre, at all Santol Energy outlets across the country, being one of the lowest on the market and these prices are predicted to drop.
The Chief Executive of Santol Energy, Alhaji Fareed Amin Yakubu, said “we find it dutiful to keep Ghanaians healthy and help fight the coronavirus pandemic.”
He noted that it is critical that everyone commits to measures put in place to avoid becoming infected, especially as the number of cases in the country rises. The country has so far recorded 11 confirmed cases, according to the Ministry of Health
It is against this backdrop that he explained that the provision of the free sanitizers to motorists, transport unions and Police officials on the street while it forms part of efforts to help in the fight against the deadly coronavirus pandemic is also intended to reduce the hoarding and racketeering of the sanitizers.
“As for the reduction in the prices of fuel, it has always been our delight to provide our cherished customers with the lowest and most competitive prices on the market while still maintaining the product quality,” Alhaji Amin Yakubu noted.
Moreover, all Santol Energy outlets also provide clean fuel and friendly service to its customers under hygienic conditions with strict safety protocols against the coronavirus pandemic.
Mr Micheal Wepeba, Marketing Manager for the company revealed that drivers, passengers and their customers can be assured of good hand-washing practices with soap under running water. “Drivers on a long-distance journey are to anticipate getting a promo food pack whilst those with long trailers and buses will get their trucks washed for free at our new state of the station located at Gomoa Mpota in the central region, as drivers take a nap before they continue their long journey,” he said
“We take health and safety of our customers serious and always ensure that our stations and premises are safe for transacting businesses.”
Santol Energy, one of the burgeoning Oil companies in the downstream sector has been meticulous in its service delivery with strict adherence to safety regulations outlined by the regulator.
It only recently received the ISO certification which is a testimony of the company’s reliability for business, productiveness and consumer satisfaction.
