The managing director of Oluchukwu Oil and Gas Station, Rev. Fr Remijus Ikeche, on Wednesday stated that over a hundred workers are now on the payroll of the station.
Speaking to Trinitas, he said the station owned by the Onitsha Archdiocese was established by the chief shepherd, the Most Rev. Valerian Okeke, in order to gainfully employ the jobless youth who are roaming the streets. He also disclosed that since the existence of the filling station, hundreds of youth have been empowered by employing them.
According to him, so many youth are now out of the streets and engaged in something productive through the intervention of the station, which he revealed is known for its standard quality, adding that every product on sale at the station is procured directly from the NNPC. He said that the station doesn’t compromise in terms of quality product delivery.
“Our motto is ‘making the difference in the oil sector’ and the mission for establishing the station is to make a difference in the oil sector by making sure that our products are genuine, and that is the major difference between Oluchukwu Oil and Gas and other filling stations.
“Our PMS (fuel) is extra standard, DPK (kerosene) extra standard, and gas also extra standard,” he said. He pitied some motorists who are falling victims at the hands of petrol stations that are selling substandard products while some are into illegal practices of manipulating their metres to maximise profits.
Father Ikeche maintained that Oluchukwu Oil and Gas gives customers what they demand and nothing less than that, saying, “If you buy 10 litres of fuel, you are getting 10 litres both in price and in quality. Our station is an apostolate that sells products with trustfulness. We are on a mission to sanitise the oil sector and we are known for the truth.”
He further thanked the archbishop for his love for the youth and for empowering them in different capacities, describing him as a good chief shepherd by every definition.
He also appreciated Oluchukwu Oil and Gas customers who know the truth about their services, urging them to continue enjoying the quality products and services the station is providing.
