Tinubu directs MDA’s to procure CNG vehicles

By George George ldowu

President Bola Tinubu has directed that all government ministries, departments and agencies must procure compressed-natural-gas-(CNG) powered vehicles for usage.

Tinubu gave this directive on Monday in furtherance to his administration’s efforts towards transition to cleaner energy.
According to him, CNG-enabled vehicles have been adjudged to produce lower emissions, even as they present a more affordable alternative for Nigerian energy consumers.

Addressing members of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) at the State House, Abuja, President Tinubu affirmed that there is noturning back in the energy reforms initiated by his administration.

His words: “This nation will not progress forward if we continue to dance on the same spot.

“We have the will to drive the implementation of CNG adoption across the country, and we must set the example as public officials in leading the way to that prosperous future that we are working to achieve for our people. It starts with us, and in seeing that we are serious, Nigerians will follow our lead.”

The President further directed the rejection of all memos brought by members of FEC seeking the purchase of traditional petrol-dependent vehicles.

He tasked the affected members of the council to go back and diligently seek value-driven procurements of CNG-compliant vehicles.
