During their presentation of the Paul Harris award to President Ernest Koroma at his State House office recently Rotarian Kishor Shankandas appealed to the president to look into the decreasing price fuel.
According to him the price of fuel went up some time back everybody started knocking at the doors of the fuel companies questioning why the skyrocketing price they argued that its not their fault but a global issue.
He intimated “it created a few hardships but it was fair on the part of the oil company because the price has gone up we did not want them to make a loss,” noting that it was however prudent then because “it is best to have fuel than have no fuel at all,” he said.
The Rotarian explained that few month later oil production increases at the global market and the prices per barrel fell and the fuel prices goes down.
“But did they (the oil marketers) bring it down to the level they should- taking the price of the international market?” he question. “This needs to be investigated,” he said.
“I’m sure being a Rotarian and head of Sierra Leone PLC Ltd you will look at it,” requested Rotarian Kishor Shankandas
“We are happy to learn that you have attained the highest office of the land and as a Rotarian we know that ever you do with the ‘Four way test’ will be mind,” said Rotarian Shankandas.
The Four-Way Test is a code of ethics adopted by Rotary it was created in 1932 by Rotarian Herbert J. Taylor.
The test, which has been translated into more than 100 languages, asks the following questions of the things we think, say or do which: Is it the truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build goodwill and better friendships? Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
