He was quoted to have said :
“This is the only filling station in Nigeria that has an electrical charging point.
“Here, we are more friendly, unlike other people. Every month end, we give out gifts. Also, we are trying to bring innovation into the industry. We believe we can sell at a reasonable price and still turn a profit.”
He added :
“This is our first filling station in Lagos. We have in Ibadan and other states. We discovered that there is no faithfulness in terms of measurement in Lagos specifically.
