Frontline petroleum products marketer, Conoil, has enjoined Nigerians to keep hope alive while calling for unity and understanding on the 17th anniversary of democratic rule in the country.
In its message of hope to Nigerians, Conoil noted that Nigeria has indeed come a long way and made notable progress since the return to civil rule 17 years ago; the longest period of sustained democratic governance in the country.
The oil major observed that despite the challenges experienced along the way, Nigerians have remained strong, resilient and courageous, and ensured that the country weathered the storm.
“It is note-worthy that despite our socio-economic and political challenges, Nigeria has made appreciable progress in its journey to nationhood. Nigerians have remained resolute and continued to demonstrate the sterling qualities of a dogged, energetic, industrious and brave people,” Conoil stated.
The company called for unity among all Nigerians irrespective of ethnic and religious affiliations. It advised that this is the only route to keep the country on the path of greatness, adding that “together, we have all it takes to be great.”
As the nation’s foremost indigenous downstream company, Conoil reaffirmed its abiding faith in the future of the country while reiterating its total commitment to go the extra mile to support the Federal Government in its efforts to make fuel available to all Nigerians and grow the economy.
The company, renowned for its commitment to service delivery, said it would continue to pursue and sustain the strategic expansion of its retail network across the length and breadth of the country with a view to ensuring that more people, especially in the most remote parts of the country, have access to petroleum products which is key to sustaining economic activities in the country.
