The Association of Mega Filling Station Owners of Nigeria (AMFSON) has lamented harsh business operating environment in the country, citing rising energy costs to run outlets, huge transportations costs in ferrying products to their stations as well as shrinking margins in the sale of products.

This was even as the association inaugurated its National Executive Committee with Chief Davison Nwankwo as the National President.

AMFSON noted that the inauguration of its officials came at a time the nation is battling epileptic supply and high cost of petroleum products across the country.

In a statement made available to Journalists in Kaduna after its Ordinary General Meeting (OGM) in PortHarcourt, Rivers State, the Secretary of the Board of Trustees of AMFSON, Ambassador Kenneth Nwachukwu, recalled that AMFSON came into existence in 2010 with the aim of protecting the interest of its members.

Nwachukwu therefore urged AMFSON members to remain united and committed to the cause of the association in order for them to derive maximum benefits from the association.

According to the statement, “The Association of Mega Filling Station Owners of Nigeria (AMFSON) has inaugurated its national executive committee with Chief Davison Nwankwo as the national President.
