Lagos - Kabir Gbemisola, Chairman, Fatgbems Group of Companies, said on Monday that the management was planning to build three more mega stations in the hinterlands to boost petrol distribution.
Gbemisola told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that the essence of having additional mega stations in the hinterlands was to allow some local communities to get petroleum products with ease.
He said that the company was planning to increase its sales from three million litres to five million litres monthly.
“Our target is to attain aggregate sales of five million litres.
Gbemisola said that the current sales figure was grossly inadequate and that efforts were on to boost allocation and distribution in the company’s areas of operation.
"At the moment, we have 24 outlets as we have been able to add one more to the existing 23 outlets.
“My plan is to add three more outlets yearly to the existing facilities.
"In fact, we shall be adding another one before the year runs out.
“We operate in the South-West and part of our plan is not to remain a regional player, but a leader in Sub-Saharan Africa,’’ he told NAN.
Gbemisola also said that plans were on to operate both in the downstream and upstream sectors of the oil and gas industry.
"Some of the major players in the upstream and midstream sectors today started as downstream operators.
"For us, part of our plan is to evolve into a major player in upstream operations and that we are working towards already.
"We have a Customer Complaints Department to attend to all customers’ queries which were investigated within 24 hours.
“Customer gets a feedback via e-mail, telephone calls or a Short Message Service.
"This has given us a boost in terms of patronage,’’ Gbemisola said.
