“We will continue to invest in our business to meet world-class standards and ensure that our service stations are accessible, clean, efficient, customer-friendly and designed to meet and exceed expectations,” said Mr. LeGoff.
Chief of Bantama, Baffour Owusu Amankwatia VI, Chairman for the occasion, praised Vivo Energy, stating the positive effect that this would have on employment in the region.
“This investment by Vivo Energy will lead to more jobs for our people and boost our local economy. For this we are most grateful,” he said.
Member of Parliament (MP) for Bantama, Daniel Okyem Aboagye, was also very pleased with the development.
“I am very happy to witness this event. In addition to enjoying more of Shell’s quality service, the introduction of a global brand such as KFC is big news for us, as this will ultimately attract more global brands to the region,” he said.
Project Director of KFC, Mohan Monusamy, expressed appreciation for the partnership with Vivo Energy.
