GOIL has undertaken a 10-kilometre walk in Accra as part of activities to celebrate Ghana’s 66th Independence Day.
It was on the theme ‘Good Energy for a healthy Nation’, and intended to draw awareness on the need to stay fit and meaningfully contribute in national development.
The walk was led by the Group CEO/MD-GOIL, Mr. Kwame Osei Prempeh; Board Chairman, Mr. Reginald Daniel Laryea; and GOIL’s Brand Ambassador, Prof. Azumah Nelson – and was also attended by over 1,500 persons including management, staff, keep-fit clubs and some corporate partners of GOIL.
The over two-hour walk began at the El-Wak Sports Stadium after a short stretching exercise.
The enthusiastic participants trekked through the Aviation area, Airport Street, 37 Military Hospital road to Jubilee House before branching toward Christ the King School.
The walk’s last leg saw the team head toward the DVLA head-office before ending back at the El-Wak sports stadium and being climaxed with a 15-minutes aerobics exercise.
In a brief remark, Group CEO and MD, Mr. Kwame Osei Prempeh, said as part of the country’s proud heritage GOIL associates itself with the celebration of Ghana’s 66th Independence Day, pledging its continued commitment to serving consumers. He noted that celebrating the country’s 66th independence anniversary should remind Ghanaians of their capability, as shown by GOIL, to manage their own affairs. He appealed for consumers to continue patronising GOIL fuels and lubricants.
The Board Chairman, Mr. Reginald Daniel Laryea, stressed the importance of fitness for staff and workers – noting that “GOIL is nothing without you. You make GOIL happy when you patronise our products because you believe in quality and preserving the life-span of your vehicles …. We thank you for making the right choice all the time.”
GOIL’S Brand Ambassador, Prof. Azumah Nelson, suggested regular exercise and urged participants – especially staff and management of GOIL – to continue keeping fit because it will help keep everyone away from doctors.
Prizes were awarded to individuals who distinguished themselves during the walk – including the most enduring participants aged between 65–70 years and others who walked briskly during the 10km distance. The topmost prizes were the ‘Good Energy Award’; ‘the Brand Ambassador Award’; and the ‘Group CEO Award’.
