“We are proud to say we are sponsors of Ghana’s two most glamorous clubs – Asante Kotoko and Accra Hearts of Oak and today we have an agreement between the GOIL Group and the Ghana Football Association as official fuel partners.
The GFA has agreed to purchase fuel worth $100,000 over the next two years, therefore as the official fuel partner, GOIL will deliver fuel to the GFA up to $100,000 annually.
We want to make Ghanaians happy because we are proud to be Ghanaians, he continued.
