Shortage of quality lubricants has been identified as a major reason for the emergence of adulterated products at Ikoku Spare Parts Market, Port Harcourt, Rivers State, but the management of 11 Plc, formerly known as Mobil Nigeria, has promised to flood the market with genuine lubricants.
Manager, Lubricant Sales and Marketing, 11Plc, Steve Ezendiokwere, gave the assurance recently at a ceremony organised by the company to reward winners of the on-going Mobil Super Peel and Win Promo in Port Harcourt.
He said: “Before now, Ikoku Automobile Spare Parts market is hub of those involved in the adulteration of the lubricants. We are not saying everybody is involved and unavailability of products in the past paved way for adulteration of lubricants.
“With us, the era of unavailability of product is gone as 11Plc has taken steps to ensure steady availability of products. Mobil lubricants will always be available for purchase, forthwith. We are aligning with changing trend in the country and the promo is our way of saying thank you to loyal customers.”
General Manager, Lubes, 11Plc, Umesh Malik, said the promo was first of its kind for Mobil in Nigeria, just as he thanked leadership of National Automobile Technicians Association for robust relationship with the company over the years, expressing hope that a member of the association wins the Grand Prize.
“The promo is targeted at rewarding our loyal customers for their patronage over the past years. It is on 4L packs of our Mobil Super 1000 X1 which is blended locally in our Apapa Plant.
“Other prizes include: tricycles, generators, motorcycles, cookers, toolboxes and many more. The more purchases a customer makes, the higher his chances of winning the Star prize.
“However, Rivers State is hosting the second of seven draws, after the first was done in Ibadan. Other draws to be done are Enugu, Benin, Kano, Abuja. Promo Products can be purchased from all Mobil Stations, NIPCO stations and major lubricant retailers nationwide.”
Also, Victor Etuk, one of the winners said: “I am a witness and beneficiary and I urge people to seize the opportunity of the promo to enjoy the amazing prizes being offered.”
