By cathey.ebong on February, 22 2013

Nigeria just got “greener” and low income earners are the focal point of Techno Oil’s new gas stove which was launched on February 21, 2013 at the Mainland Hotel 2/4, Murtala Muhammed Way, Ebute-Metta, Oyingbo, Lagos Mainland.

The event which was planned and organised by Kodec Connect Consulting Limited as part of its Corporate Event Management services hosted the Lagos state government officials, stakeholders, the market men and women association of Oyingbo, Techno Oil staff, press men and other guests.

“I have never seen a beautiful display of red and white by so many people” was the exclamation of the master of ceremonies, Mr. Victor Ayara on the over 600 market women in white attires and red head gears.

The Market men and women of Oyingbo who were led by the Iya-Oloja of Oyingbo market, Alhaja Balogun turned out in their numbers dazzling everyone in their red and white combo. The market association expressed their joy to the organisers-Kodec Connect Consulting Limited and the management of Techno Oil for first of all considering their own market for the launch and blessing them with the privilege of being the first set of people to get the new gas stoves.

The association who welcomed and entertained guest in music and dance trouped out in their numbers to purchase the stoves soon after its unveiling which was sold to them at N4, 500 for 6kg and N4,000 for 3kg, N2, 000 less than the original market value.

Speaking at the unveiling, the Managing Director of Techno Oil said the “going green initiative” aligns with the government’s initiative to reduce dependency on fossil fuel.

He noted that the company was determined to champion the paradigm shift from kerosene to cooking gas, adding that Techno Oil had actively promoted, and had been in the forefront of attitudinal change from fuels to cleaner energy such as gas.

While also revealing that the new Techno Gas stoves are targeted at the low income group that rely on kerosene, the product will also make Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) – cooking gas – more affordable.

The Lagos state government was not left out of the initiative as it appreciated Techo Oil through its representative from the Ministry of Energy for identifying with the government’s desire to produce safe energy for all through the oil and gas sector.

The event ended on a very high note with a dancing competition and presentation by a group from the National theatre in Lagos.
