Earlier at a dealers conference held at the same hotel where the company took stock of its performance during the year as well as plans for the future, the Managing Director of Goil, Mr. P. A. K. Akorli, said 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 again urged the dealers not to forget that as an indigenous company, all the profits Goil makes remains in Ghana, adding that “the rebranding of the company with a new logo earlier this year shows the new face of Goil which 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.
He also hinted that Goil will soon enter the renewable energy sector especially the provision of wind power.
