Freetown, Sierra Leone, May 23, 2024 – In a decisive move, Aminata Petroleum has airlifted 5,000 metric tons of gasoline to Sierra Leone, aiming to tackle the pressing fuel crisis in the nation.

Mohammad Turay, the Chief Executive Officer of Aminata & Sons (SL) Limited in Sierra Leone, revealed to journalists on Thursday, May 23, at the company’s head office in Clinetown, Freetown, that they have brought in over 5,000 metric tons of gasoline (petrol) to address the looming fuel shortage in the country. “This is a critical moment, and we are stepping up to address the situation in order to alleviate the suffering of Sierra Leoneans,” says Turay. He added that his company is not doing this for profit, but to address the needs of the people of Sierra Leone, which is why they are in business to serve.
