“PRESIDENT BUHARI ROLLS OUT AUTOGAS PROGRAMME AND PLANS 1 MILLION VEHICLE CONVERSION BY END 2021
H.E. President Muhammadu Buhari will on Tuesday, December 1, roll out the much awaited National Gas Expansion Programme (NGEP) in Abuja.
The event would herald the formal dispensing of autogas (CNG & LPG) products at two NNPC Retail stations.
The roll out is the culmination of the resolve of the President Buhari-led Government to deepen domestic usage of natural gas in its various forms. It is also in line with the government’s plan to make gas the first choice source of cheaper and cleaner energy for Nigerians in their personal and industrial endeavours.
Also at the event, the HMSP will, on behalf of the FG handover CNG-powered mass transport buses to the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) as part of the agreement reached with Labour during negotiations and in recognition of the role organised Labour plays in the quest to bring relief to ordinary Nigerians.
The Federal Government Autogas program will deliver at least one million vehicle conversions by the end of 2021 and herald the clean energy transition for Nigeria and delivery of cheap transportation fuel,” the statement reads.
