The promo, designed to reward the company’s loyal customers, is to commence on March 26 and end on April 6.
The LPG Manager of Techno Oil, Mr Eugene Osimiri, announced the bonanza while unveiling the company’s Easter Promo Package at a ceremony in Lagos on Sunday.
The promo, anchored on the company’s flagship 12.5kg TechnoGas cylinders, is a ‘’humble way of giving back to our customers and to show that we care,’’ Osimiri stated.
He said that during the period of the promo, the product would be sold at a “non resistible discounted price’’.
Osimiri, while congratulating Christians on a successful Lent season, urged Techno Oil’s customers nationwide to take advantage of the promo to buy the TechnoGas 12.5kg cylinders.
It will be recalled that Techno Oil in its drive to sustain its Going Green Revolution, embarked on an advocacy campaign for the use of LPG at homes, rather than using kerosene and firewood.
Osimiri said that shifting to cooking gas would help to save scarce foreign exchange hitherto, expended on kerosene importation.
He said that collaboration with local energy companies to promote the use of cooking gas would also give a boost to the Local Content Initiative of the Federal Government.
The manager, who lamented the low level consumption of LPG in Nigeria compared to other West African countries, said that drastic measures needed to be put in place to move Nigerians away from the deep-rooted apathy on use of LPG.
He noted that Techno Oil had over the years, upgraded its bottling plants, infrastructure and cylinder injection facilities to stimulate domestic consumption of LPG.
Osimiri said that Techno Oil had distributed over 20,000 units of 3kg, 5kg, 6kg, and 12.5kg as well as the 50kg LPG bottles at discounted prices to Nigerian families in recent months.
He urged government to embark on an enlightenment campaign to educate the populace on the need for households to embrace cooking gas, stressing the need for government to provide incentives to oil and gas companies to intensify LPG manufacturing in Nigeria. *NAN
