President Bola Tinubu on Monday May 13th directed the mandatory procurement of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG)-powered vehicles by all Government Ministries, Departments and Agencies.

The President’s directive is in line with his commitment to ensure energy security, drive utility, and cut high fuel costs, according to a statement issued by Chief Ajuri Ngelale, the Special Adviser to the President (Media & Publicity).

The move is also in furtherance of Nigeria’s effort to transition to cleaner energy as CNG-enabled vehicles have been adjudged to produce lower emissions compared to the petrol and diesel-powered ones.

Addressing members of the Federal Executive Council (FEC) at the State House on Monday, President Tinubu affirmed that there is no turning back in the energy reforms initiated by his administration.

“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 stated.

The President further directed the rejection of all memos brought by members of FEC seeking the purchase of petrol-powered vehicles, tasking the affected members of the council to procure CNG-powered ones.
