Santol Energy is embarking on a public health campaign to give away free hand sanitisers to drivers and passengers as part of its corporate drive to support the wellbeing of customers and the general public, amidst the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
In addition to this, the indigenous Ghanaian owned oil marketing company (OMC) 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 countermeasures 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 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.
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 officers 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.
Marketing Manager of Santol Energy, Micheal Wepeba, also said, 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 added that Santol Energy prioritises the health and safety of its customers and always ensure that their stations and premises are safe for transacting business.
