Erick Thohir Laments Toilet Fees in Pertamina Service Stations

23 November 2021 07:42 WIB

TEMPO.CO, JakartaState-owned Enterprises Minister Erick Thohir in his Instagram post highlighted the issue of "pay toilet" facilities in Pertamina service stations. As mentioned in the video upload, he directly requested the state-energy firm’s higher ups to make toilets free of charge.

“To Pertamina directors, I expect public facilities such as these toilets should be free because managers already [generate income] from gas sales, moreover, there are grocery stores. The public should receive an added facility,” said the Minister in the video he posted to his personal social media account on November 22. 

His request is based on the situation in the field as the video shows him visiting a Pertamina service station located in Probolinggo. However, based on the exchange between Erick and the clerk, the gas station is one that is run privately. 

According to his post, the station charges from Rp2,000 - Rp4,000 for various toilet uses and according to the clerk, are to be used to maintain toilet facilities. 

Erick Thohir believes SOEs are required to provide the best services for members of the public and asked Pertamina directors to look into the issue and asked for the cooperation of privately-run gas stations to adhere to his views. “Under Pertamina, toilets must be free of charge,” he said.
