Tinubu Directs MDAs to Procure CNG Vehicles

President Bola Tinubu has directed all government ministries, departments, and agencies to purchase compressed-natural-gas-powered vehicles. 

Presidential spokesman, Ajuri Ngelale, said this in a statement yesterday.

According to him, the move is part of the country’s efforts to transition to cleaner energy as CNG-enabled vehicles have been adjudged to produce lower emissions, even as they present a more affordable alternative for Nigerian energy consumers.

Tinubu also directed the rejection of all memos brought by members of Federal Executive Council (FEC) seeking the purchase of traditional petrol-dependent vehicles, tasking the affected members of the council to go back and diligently seek value-driven procurements of CNG-compliant vehicles.
