S.O Peprah, manager of the Nima Roundabout Goil Service Station, was last Friday night selected as the Overall Best National Dealer at an awards and dinner dance ceremony held at the La Palm Beach Hotel in Accra to honour Goil dealers throughout the country.
He got the top award for exceeding “Category A” monthly fuel sales target set by the company and took home a plaque, and an undisclosed motivational package.
In a brief address, chairman of the Goil Board, Prof. William Asomaning acknowledged the tremendous contributions of the dealers to the sustained growth of the company, saying that “without you, there will be no Goil”.
Other award winners in “Category A” were: Ramboll Company Limited – Dansoman Roundabout Goil Service Station (2nd Best National Dealer), Mr. Gaby Salloum –Madina Ogbojo Goil Service Station and Asonaba Company Limited – Oduom Goil Service Station, Kumasi, (3rd National Dealers), while Mr. S.K. Hoenyedzi – Guggisberg Avenue Goil Service Station and Senelloyd Limited of Ashalley Botwe won the 4th and 5th (National Best Dealer) respectively.
There were winners also in categories ‘B’, ‘C’ and ‘D’ as well as special awards. All the award winners took away various prizes including a plaque and citation.
Earlier at a dealers conference held at the same hotel where the company took stock of its performance during the year and also looked at plans for the future, the Managing Director of Goil, Mr. P. A. K. Akorli, said as the largest fully indigenous Oil Marketing Company, Goil’s vision is to be the best good energy provider in the country and beyond. He said the dealers conference therefore, was one of the platforms for management and the dealers to strategise to stay on top of the competition in the energy sector.
He called on the dealers to be part of this dream and help Goil to grow more and provide jobs for the unemployed. He urged the dealers not to forget that as an indigenous company all the profits Goil will make will remain in Ghana; adding that “the rebranding of the company with a new logo earlier this year shows the new face of Goil and the company is determined to sustain its dominance in the retail sector of the oil industry”.
Mr. Akorli said Goil had moved into new areas in the sector and is now supplying aviation fuel especially for helicopters being used to prospect for oil in the Western Region.
He also hinted that Goil will soon enter the renewable energy sector especially the provision of wind power.
