The Member of Parliament for Nabdam constituency in the Upper East Region Dr. Mark-Kurt Nawaane has opened a new fueling station in the area to fulfil his late father’s wish.
According to the legislator, the idea to open a fueling station was initiated by his deceased father many years ago.
“This idea started in 2003 thanks to my father, whose wish was for me to open a fueling station where he can usually come out from the house to sit and watch over things. Sadly, he is not here with us to now enjoy what he wished for, but his wish has been fulfilled.”
The fueling station would help provide employment for the youth in the area, Dr. Nawaane said.
“I made it clear to regulators that management of the station will be natives from Nabdam and it has been agreed. So, from the top to the button all will be workers from here. And I want to use this opportunity to call on natives to treat it as their own and make it grow into what we all wish for.”
Dr. Nawaane explained that he chose to franchise with the GOIL brand because it is wholly Ghanaian owned.
“Goil is owned by the state so I believe we ought to always think of the country in whatever business or steps we are taking.”
The operations Manager for Goil in charge of the Northern zone, Mohammed Awal gave the firm assurance that the fuel dispensed at the station is of the highest quality.
He therefore called on the consuming public to keep their trust in Goil for good quality oil for their engines.
The chiefs and people of the area also expressed their happiness to have a fueling station in the district which saved them from long-distance travels in search of fuel.
The chief of Kotintaabig, a community under the Sakote Traditional Council, Naba Bilheesong Lagwongt also called on natives from far and near to emulate the MP’s initiative for the growth of the area.
Some of the MPs who came to support him assured that they will follow in his footsteps to bring employment opportunities for their constituents.
